Goaltender Ray LeBlanc, who led the United States within a victory of an Olympic medal, was called up from the minors by the Chicago Blackhawks and will start tonight's game against San Jose. LeBlanc, a 27-year-old who spent almost 10 years in the minor leagues, was playing this season for the Indianapolis Ice of the International Hockey League. By playing in at least one NHL game, LeBlanc becomes eligible for the expansion draft involving the new Tampa Bay and Ottawa franchises.

Maybe the Chicago Blackhawks were a bit premature in sending goaltender Ray LeBlanc back to the minors. The star of the U.S. Olympic team filled in for No.1 goalie Ed Belfour on Tuesday night and led the Blackhawks to a victory over San Jose. He was sent back to Indianapolis Wednesday. When the Blackhawks were pounded, 7-1, by the Rangers Wednesday night at New York, it was obvious they needed help in the nets, for this game, at least.

After eight seasons in the minor leagues awaiting a chance to play in the NHL, U.S. Olympic team goaltender Ray LeBlanc got that opportunity Tuesday. He made the most of it, stopping 21 shots in beating the San Jose Sharks, 5-1, for the Chicago Blackhawks. Fame was fleeting. Chicago returned LeBlanc, 27, to Indianapolis of the International Hockey League Wednesday.

Ray LeBlanc, who stopped 46 shots in the U.S. hockey team's 2-0 victory over Germany Tuesday, will start again tonight, for the third game, when the United States faces Finland. A victory by the United States would clinch a berth in the medal round as one of four teams that will advance from Group A. "I'm going to stay with the hot guy," Coach Dave Peterson said of LeBlanc, the 27-year-old minor leaguer who has helped the United States get off to its best Olympic start since 1960.

U.S. goaltender Ray LeBlanc said he has not been told by the Chicago Blackhawks whether they will promote him from their International Hockey League affiliate. Senior Vice President Bob Pulford said last week the club will give LeBlanc a shot at the NHL to make him eligible for the upcoming expansion draft. "All I know is what the coaches told me, that they were going to call me up, but nobody's said anything to me," LeBlanc said.

It was a nice setup for an Olympic hero fresh from the minor leagues, playing in his NHL debut for a team that was 9-0-4 in its last 13 games at home. Playing against a visitor that was 2-27-2 on the road. Ray LeBlanc responded with a 5-1 victory in goal for the Chicago Blackhawks, turning away 21 shots and not giving up a goal until the third period. "U.S.A., U.S.A.

Ray LeBlanc seems baffled by the fuss being made over him, surprised that he should be celebrated for merely doing his job--stopping pucks for the U.S. Olympic hockey team. "I've thought nothing of being a hero," he said. "I just play the game and go out and prepare for the next one."

So what now for Ray LeBlanc? In five seasons as a minor-league goalie, playing a total of 105 games, he couldn't do enough to earn a single minute on the ice in the NHL. But in a week and a half in Meribel, France, LeBlanc has earned international acclaim. He had drawn blank after blank in his bid to reach the NHL, stuck in goal instead in places like Ft. Wayne, Flint, Saginaw and Indianapolis. Now, as the goalie for the U.S.
