I.S.C.A. ( Aboriginal Sports ) Athlete Player of the Month for November, 2011.

Brad Leeb
Born in Canada, hockey has always been a part of Brad Leeb's life. Brad Leeb started playing hockey at the age of 6, and have been playing, watching and living hockey his entire life.

Like every kid that laces up the skates, Brad Leeb always dreamed of playing in the NHL. He started playing minor hockey in Red Deer, Alberta and was fortunate enough to play major junior for his home town Red Deer Rebels of the WHL. He steadily improved and played for Team Canada at the IIHF World Junior Championships in 1999.

Later in 1999 Brad was invited to the Vancouver Canucks camp and landed an entry level contract. He went on to play in Vancouver’s minor league system for the next 3 years, managing to suit up for 5 games with the Canucks.

In 2002 the Canucks traded him to the Toronto Maple Leafs. Brad played in the Maple Leafs system for the next 5 seasons with the St. John’s ‘Baby Leafs’ and the Toronto Marlies. He played one game with the Maple Leafs in 2004. This was very special for him because the Leafs were his Dad’s favorite team when he was growing up.

In 2008 Brad decided to take my career over to Europe. His brother Greg was playing in Germany (DEL) and they had never played on the same hockey team before, they had only ever played against each other. Going to Germany was an opportunity to play on the same team, and even the same line. Brad have always looked up to Greg, and he has been a huge influence on my career. They are still playing together in Nuremberg for the Thomas Sabo Ice Tigers. They are like the Sedin's of the DEL!

Leeb started his career playing for the Red Deer Midget Chiefs in the Alberta Midget Hockey League. He played 3 games for his hometown Red Deer Rebels as a 15 year old, then went on to play 4 full seasons with the Rebels. He also played in the 1998-1999 WHL All-Star game.

Leeb played for Team Canada at the 1999 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Canada won silver after losing to the Russians in triple overtime. Leeb finished tied for second in team scoring with Simon Gagne, Kyle Calder, and Brendan Morrow, all had 8 points in 7 games.

In 1999–2000, Leeb signed with the Vancouver Canucks as a free agent. He was with the Canucks organization for three seasons, appearing in 4 games with the Canucks while playing in the minor league system with the (Syracuse Crunch (AHL), Kansas City Blades) (IHL), and Manitoba Moose (AHL).

In 2002–03, Leeb was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs for Tomas Mojzis. Leeb playedBrad Leeb one game for the Maple Leafs, and mainly played in the Maple Leafs minor league system with the St. John's Maple Leafs (AHL) and the Toronto Marlies (AHL).

Leeb played the 2007–08 season in Germany for ERC Ingolstadt in the Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL).

In 2008-2009, he went to play for the Thomas Sabo Ice Tigers (DEL) in the city of Nuremberg, Germany. He is currently still playing here.

Leeb is also currently playing hockey on the same team as his older brother Greg Leeb in Nuremberg. This is the first time the brothers have ever played on the same team. Growing up they played against each other in the WHL, IHL, AHL, and the DEL.

Brad have a beautiful wife, Emily, who he is completely in love with. Brad also have a son, Brayden, who means the world to him.

Brad owe everything in his life to the game of hockey.
