According to InsideCollegeHockey.com, University of Minnesota defenseman Nick Leddy and forward Josh Birkholz both left the team yesterday. The Minutemen will open the 2010-11 season with a pair of games at the Gophers in October. Leddy, a 2009 NHL First Round Draft Pick, came to terms on a 3-year, $2.7 million contract with the Chicago Blackhawks foregoing his final three seasons of collegiate eligibility. Birkholz is leaving to join the Everett (Wash.) Silvertips of the Western Hockey League as he was facing a suspension for violation of team rules.
