Leblanc Gets Under-17 Camp Invite

Saint John Sea Dogs first-round pick Olivier Leblanc is among 40 players invited to Team Quebec’s under-17 camp. The camp began today in Sherbrooke and goes until Sunday.

The 22 players selected for the team will represent Quebec at the World Under-17 Hockey Challenge in December.

Lebanc is on Team Blue at the camp which includes Daniel Audette, the first overall pick in June’s Quebec Major Junior Hockey League Entry Draft.

The Sea Dogs selected Leblanc, a 16-year old defenseman, with the 11th overall pick in the 2012 QMJHL Entry Draft.

According to Elite Prospects, Leblanc registered three goals and 12 assists in 40 games with Séminaire St-François Blizzard of the Quebec AAA ranks last year.

Leblanc is expected to make the Sea Dogs this season and should see a decent amount of ice time since, y’know, this year’s team isn’t exactly loaded with depth.
