Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Ray LeBlanc
Goalie Raymond LeBlanc made an emergency start for the Chicago Blackhawks in 1991-92. He enjoyed a long minor pro career mostly in the IHL.

Born in Fitchburg, Massachusetts Leblanc played the 1983-84 season with the Kitchener Rangers and led the OHL with 39 wins. Undrafted and unsigned he began his pro career with the Pinebridge Bucks and Carolina Thunderbirds of the ACHL. In 1987 he was named to the IHL second all-star team after recording 33 wins with the Flint Spirits. After excelling on three different minor pro clubs in 1988-89, Leblanc was signed as a free agent by the Hawks.

LeBlanc allowed only one goal and notched a win in his start for Chicago but the team used Ed Belfour in most games and had young Dominek Hasek in reserve. Beginning in 1991-92, he was a regular in the "I" with the Indianapolis Ice and the Chicago Wolves. Part way through the 1997-98 season he joined the Flint Generals of the United Hockey League. Leblanc retired in 2000 after playing a couple of seasons with the ECHL's Jacksonville Lizard Kings.
