The Arizona Sundogs Tuesday acquired forward and past CHL champion Derek LeBlanc from the Missouri Mavericks, although terms of the deal were not disclosed, per club policy.

LeBlanc, 26, joins the Sundogs after tallying two assists and a plus/minus rating of minus-2 in seven games for the Mavericks this season.

He will make his debut for Arizona (3-2-2 record, 8 points) Wednesday against the expansion Denver Cutthroats (3-3-0, 6 points) at Tim's Toyota Center. The puck drops at 6:05 p.m.

"We are excited for LeBlanc to join our team and have a player of his caliber at this juncture of the season," Sundogs General Manager Chris Presson said in a news release. "He is a proven goal scorer and brings championship experience with him."

LeBlanc, a 6-foot-2, 210-pound native of Brandon, Manitoba, Canada, began his professional hockey career with the Rocky Mountain (Colo.) Storm, now a defunct CHL franchise, in 2007-08. He played in only five games and colleted one assist.

However, from 2008-11, LeBlanc was a key member of the Rapid City (S.D.) Rush.

From 2009-11 with Rapid City, LeBlanc registered 85 points in 107 games and helped the club reach the playoffs in back-to-back campaigns.

In 2009-10, he racked up 26 goals and 19 assists (45 points) in 64 games. That season, the Rush won the CHL Ray Miron Presidents' Cup, and he recorded nine goals and five assists in 17 playoff games.

Last winter, LeBlanc was on the East Coast Hockey League's (ECHL) Idaho Steelheads, where he scored 20 goals and dished 20 assists in 63 games.

Prior to signing with the Steelheads, LeBlanc skated in 11 games for the Belfast Giants of the Elite Ice Hockey League (EIHL) in the United Kingdom, averaging one point per game.
