At 22, Leddy has already won a Stanley Cup Championship in addition to a state championship as a senior at Eden Prairie High School in 2009. That year, he was also named Mr. Hockey and was drafted by the Minnesota Wild with the 16th overall pick months later.
Leddy would only play the 2009-10 season for the Gophers before leaving for the NHL.
Despite being drafted by the Wild, Leddy never suited up for the home team and was traded to the Blackhawks in February of 2010. He appeared in his first game on Oct. 7 of that year and would go on to play 46 games that season. In 2011-12, Leddy played in 82 games but has only skated in 48 games this season while also spending some time in the AHL.
- Former Gopher basketball player, Colton Iverson, worked out for the Minnesota Timberwolves last Friday at Target Center. Iverson is projected to be a second-round draft pick in Thursday’s NBA Draft.
- USA Today ranks the Gopher football team as No. 77 this upcoming season. Winning five games is do-able, according to college football writer Paul Myerberg.
