Center Fern LeBlanc spent parts of three NHL seasons with the Detroit Red Wings in the 70s. Apart from his short-lived NHL tenure, he was an accomplished scorer in junior, the minors and Europe.

The native of Gaspesie, Quebec was chosen 11th overall by the Detroit Red Wings in 1976 after he scored 63 goals for the QMJHL's Sherbrooke Castors. During his rookie pro season the young pivot played a trio of games in Motown and scored 39 goals in 77 contests for the IHL's Kalamazoo Wings. He followed basically the same pattern the next year with two games in Detroit and a 29 goal performance with the Kansas City Red Wings of the CHL.

During the 1978-79 season, LeBlanc was recalled for 29 games in Detroit. He looked solid with five goals and a respectable plus-1 rating. By the next season he was back in the minors full time since the Red Wings had Pete Mahovlich. Paul Woods, Bill Hogaboam and Dan Bolduc at center. He ended up taking some time of then venturing to Switzerland where he played for several clubs before retiring in 1989.
