Nick Leddy, the 2009 first round draft pick (16th overall) by Minnesota has joined Twitter. Traded to Chicago with Kim Johnsson for Cam Barker less than a year later, Leddy has become the most successful Wild first round pick for another team while Barker was bought out in July and subsequently signed with Edmonton.
The Eden Prairie native joins Blackhawks like Patrick Kane, Duncan Keith and Viktor Stalberg on the social media site.
Now in his second NHL season following a one season stop at the University of Minnesota, Leddy set up Chicago's first goal last night in the Blackhawks' 5-4 shootout loss to the Wild. Leddy has 3 goals and 34 assists (37 points) in 80 games this season. In comparison, Jared Spurgeon leads Minnesota's defensemen with 23 points.
