Nick Leddy had a goal and an assist on Wednesday and impressed coach Joel Quenneville of late.
"It was a nice shot, a great shot," Quenneville said of Leddy's fourth goal of the season. "He had poise, patience and he's really picked up his game the last two nights." Leddy was picked up from the Wild in a trade for Cam Barker a year ago and will be a solid defenseman with the Blackhawks in the years to come. He is capable of becoming a good offensive defenseman in the future.
