After spending two years in Smiths Falls — Josh LeBlanc is thrilled to be back in Kingston playing junior hockey for his hometown Voyageur’s.

“It’s great — I love living with my family at home, it did miss them in Smiths Falls — but it’s really good to get back with all my friends and buddies are from Kingston, so it’s just an easy move.”
And its a “move” that Vees General Manager Peter Goulet couldn’t make quick enough — for LeBlanc — the smile says it all.
“I know Pete and the whole staff is excited about the trade and so was I — I couldn’t have been any happier to come to an organization like this — I means a lot to me as a player, so I don’t want to left anyone down — just do my best.”
Another attribute that LeBlanc brings to the team is experience and leadership.
“I’m definitely not shy to stand-up in the room and say something if the guys are down and it’s definitely something that I want to step into — for sure.”
The 19 year-old forward is coming off his best game as a Voyageur — picking-up 6-points last Sunday against Mississauga.
“I love the team and I love who I’m playing with and when you play with those kind of guys it makes the game a lot easier so. You see the ice better, you know where each other are I’m luck enough to be in that position.”
