The 6’3” defenceman, who will wear #10 for the Giants, then joined RPI for four years of NCAA hockey. Leonard led all RPI defencemen in both 2013/14 & 2014/15 with 12 points & 10 points respectively and was appointed team captain in his final year.

2014/15 also saw Leonard make his professional debut, appearing in one AHL game with the Rochester Americans as well as five games with the Reading Royals of the ECHL.

Leonard split the 2015/16 between Reading, Fort Wayne and Evansville before rejoining the Komets for the following two seasons.

In 2017/18 Curtis scored three goals and 18 assists and his +34 rating was the second best in the ECHL. His efforts led the Komets to second place in the central division and Leonard was awarded the ‘Best Defensive Defenceman’, voted by the Professional Hockey Players’ Association.
