QMJHL Profile Defenceman Loic Leduc is ranked No. 209 among North American skaters. Leduc, a 6-6, 190-pound native of Châteauguay, Que., recorded two goals and eight assists in 65 games this season. He’s hoping an NHL team will be looking for a towering defenceman with shutdown ability.

 “I think my defensive ability and I can use my long reach,” said Leduc, who had interest from 10 teams. “They don’t have any huge defencemen in the rankings. I think there are two defencemen that are 6-6.”
