Nick Leddy could be a trade candidate for the Chicago Blackhawks, according to hockey insider Elliotte Friedman.
He has to be qualified at $3.4 million next season. The Blackhawks may let him walk to avoid having to pay him that kind of money or they could try to move him elsewhere for some kind of return. There were rumors that Chicago might deal Johnny Oduya to get under the cap, but he's an important shutdown defender. Sep 15 - 4:19 PM

Nick Leddy netted his first goal of the playoffs on Wednesday.

He scored on a pretty backhander on a breakaway to open the scoring in the first period. The marker was his first in 27 games, dating back to the regular season. Leddy has four points and 13 shots in 13 postseason contests. The Blackhawks ended up losing the match 6-2, so their series with the Kings is tied at 1-1 going to Los Angeles.

Updating a previous item, Nick Leddy will return to Chicago's lineup in Game 4 Friday night.

He was a healthy scratch in Tuesday's 4-0 loss to the Wild. Leddy, who is a Minnesota-native, will get to play in front of family and friends in his return from the press box.

Coach Joel Quenneville said that Nick Leddy will get another chance to play in Chicago's second-round series against Minnesota.

He was a healthy scratch for Game 3 and it hasn't been confirmed yet if he'll play in Game 4 on Friday night. "I still think he'll be a big part of this series and success going forward," Quenneville said. "We're going to need him here, and we want him to be a part of it." Leddy has two assists in eight 2014 postseason contests.

Nick Leddy was a healthy scratch Tuesday.

He was benched for most of Game 2 against Minnesota on Sunday. Sheldon Brookbank took his spot on the back end. Leddy played in 296 consecutive games, including 44 playoff matches, before being sent to the press box for Game 3. Coach Joel Quenneville said the decision was more about rewarding Brookbank than punishing Leddy.
May 7 - 8:41 AM

Nick Leddy was benched in Sunday's 4-1 victory over Minnesota after he played the most of any player in the first period.

He logged just 46 seconds in the third period and he ended up with 13:48 of ice time. Leddy's defensive shortcomings placed him in coach Joel Quenneville's doghouse for parts of the playoffs last year as well.
May 5 - 2:40 PM

Nick Leddy has been contributing offensively of late.

He has a goal and three assists in his past four games. On the season, Leddy has recorded 29 points and a plus-16 rating in 71 contests.

The Pittsburgh Penguins and Chicago Blackhawks are no stranger to outdoor games, but Saturday's contest at Soldier Field will still be a first for some players.

Nick Leddy can be counted among those that hasn't experienced an outdoor game before. "It reminds me of the pond in my back yard when I was younger," Leddy said. "My dad would always be icing, making sure it was always smooth for us. It brings me back to my younger days. You're letting the wind hit your face, it's definitely a different atmosphere." This is Chicago's second outdoor contest and Pittsburgh's third.

Nick Leddy notched a goal and an assist in Monday's 5-3 win over Los Angeles.

His sixth goal of the season snapped an 18-game goalless drought. Leddy earned just three assists over his slump. He has 23 points and a plus-13 rating in 58 contests this season.
Feb 4 - 8:42 AM

Nick Leddy plays on Chicago's third defense pairing, which means his partner changes nearly on a nightly basis.

The Blackhawks rotate Mike Rozsival, Sheldon Brookbank and Michael Kostka as their sixth defenseman. Rozsival has occupied the spot the most this season. Leddy was asked if it's tough for him to adjust to the different styles of each defense partner, but he said it's harder for them to stay focused and ready each outing knowing that two of them won't be playing.

Nick Leddy is playing much better hockey this season.

He is really beginning to blossom and has been more effective shooting and joining the rush this campaign. Leddy has five goals and 18 points in 41 games and is well ahead of his pace last season in almost all offensive categories. If Leddy is available on your wire, grab him.

Nick Leddy netted a power-play goal and added an assist in Monday's 5-2 win over New Jersey.

He has generated four points in his last five games. Leddy has 18 points in 39 games this year, which has already matched his season total from the truncated 2013 campaign.
Tue, Dec 24, 2013 07:35:00 AM

Nick Leddy registered seven shots and scored in Chicago's 4-3 loss to Dallas on Tuesday night.

The Hawks blueliner has three goals and 13 points in 29 games this campaign. Leddy is on pace for another season of just over 35 points in 2013-14, which could warrant him some attention in deeper leagues.

Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Nick Leddy is suddenly becoming more than just a promising blueliner lost in the Hawks' high-end shuffle.

Leddy has eight points in 14 games, which is already fairly promising. That makes him especially worth monitoring is how well he's played in the last four games. In that time, he has two goals and three assists for five points, a bit chunk of his season total. He's not getting a ton of TOI so this might be a matter of puck luck, though.

Nick Leddy, who was born in the state of Minnesota and drafted by the Wild, will be plenty motivated Saturday and Monday of this week when the Blackhawks play back to back games against his former team.

Leddy has been steady this season registering three points and a plus two rating in 10 games. Those who drafted him expecting a breakout, will likely be disappointed as he still plays behind Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook. That said, Leddy is progressing nicely. He is a perfect fantasy depth defenceman.
