Lebda Signs PTO With Springfield

from Garry Brown of MassLive,

Brett Lebda, a 32-year-old defenseman who has quaffed champagne from the Stanley Cup, joined the Springfield Falcons this week as a step toward reviving his hockey career.

He was at home in Chicago, skating every day and waiting for a call after finding himself out of work at free-agency time in July.

The call came Monday from Chris MacFarland, assistant general manager of the Columbus Blue Jackets, Springfield’s parent club. After conferring with president/GM Bruce Landon of the Falcons, MacFarland signed Lebda to a professional tryout agreement.
