Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Mike Leclerc
Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Mike Leclerc was a standout in the MJHL with St. Boniface in 1991-92. This was followed by four years in the WHL with three different clubs. He was chosen 55th overall by the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim in 1995 then returned to junior where he scored 58 goals for the Brandon Wheat Kings.

Leclerc spent most of his first three years as a pro in the AHL working on his game while receiving the occasional recall to the Ducks. He became a solid regular in 1999-00 and then scored 15 goals and played in a range of situations in 2000-01. He was one of the club's top performers in the first half of the season before knee and abdominal injuries ruined the remainder of his year.

After an injury plagued season in 2000-01, Leclerc rebounded the following year and was one of Anaheim's more durable players, suiting up in all 82 games. In a career year with the Ducks, Leclerc set highs in goals (20), assists (24) and points (44). Injuries continued to plague Leclerc in 2002-03, limiting him to 57 games. He bounced back, however, for the Ducks' successful playoff run to the 2003 Stanley Cup Final, recording 11 playoff points.

Coming off a solid post season in 2003, Leclerc was limited to a mere ten games in 2003-04 and in the summer of 2004-05 was acquired by the Phoenix Coyotes. Leclerc went on to play 31 games with the Coyotes before being dealt to the Calgary Flames along with netminder Brian Boucher in early February, 2006.
