He was awarded the Ben Hatskin trophy as the new league's top goalie and was named to the First All-Star team. To top off his best professional season, the Aeros won the WHA playoff championship (Avco World Trophy). McLeod was also chosen to represent Canada(WHA) in the 1974 Summit Series against the Soviet Union in September 1974. For the 1974-75 season, McLeod signed with the Vancouver Blazers where he appeared in a league record 72 games.
