Sens' Legwand Registers Two Points In Win

News: David Legwand was a central figure in Thursday's comeback victory over the Avalanche, recording a goal and assist in the 5-3 win.
Analysis: After the Sens fell behind 3-1 in the first period, David Legwand cut the deficit to one goal with Ottawa riding the man advantage. The Sens would then feast on the Avs' No. 3 goalie, Calvin Pickard, in the third period, scoring three unanswered goals, with Legwand assisting on the ultimate one. Legwand figures to remain in a bottom-six role for the Senators this season, but he should offer a little more scoring ability than the average third- or fourth-line center.

Sens Ink Legwand To Two-Year Deal

News: David Legwand signed a two-year, $6 million contract with the Senators on Friday, TSN's Aaron Ward reports.
Analysis: David Legwand was a disappointing acquisition at the trade deadline for the Red Wings last season, contributing just 11 points and a minus-9 rating in 21 games after coming over from the Predators. The Senators were in the market for a new center after trading away Jason Spezza earlier in the week, and it looks like Legwand will be tabbed to fill his role. Legwand could slot in as the team's first- or second-line center.

Red Wings' Legwand Tallies Two Points

News: David Legwand scored a game-winning power-play goal and had an assist against the Lightning on Sunday.
Analysis: David Legwand has not contributed a ton since moving from Nashville to Detroit. He has three goals and six assists in 13 games.

Legwand's Two Power-Play Points Pace Wings

News: David Legwand assisted on Brendan Smith's first-period power-play goal, then added a PP marker of his own as the Wings tamed the Wild 3-2 on Saturday.
Analysis: The ex-Predator now has seven points in nine games since being shipped from Nashville at the trade deadline for Patrick Eaves, Calle Jarnkrok and a draft pick. He has nice company in Daniel Alfredsson and Johan Franzen on the top line, but where he'll end up once Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk return from injury is anybody's guess. Between the Red Wings and Predators this season, he has quietly amassed 12 goals and 35 assists - one shy of his career high of 36 reached in 2006-07.

Red Wings' Legwand Adds Assist

News: David Legwand tallied a helper in a 3-2 victory against Toronto on Tuesday.
Analysis: David Legwand has been a bit up and down with the Red Wings so far, but does have five points in seven games to combat a minus-two. He's scoring about at the same clip he was with Nashville, so use him as you normally would.

Wings' Legwand Tallies First Goal For New Team

News: David Legwand scored his first goal as a member of the Red Wings and assisted on two more during Detroit's 7-4 win over the Devils on Friday.
Analysis: In just his second game for his new team, David Legwand helped spark a four-goal second period with a pair of assists and then scored one of his own in the third. The points were his first since returning from the Olympic break and he now has 11 goals and 32 assists over 64 games this season.

Red Wings Get Legwand From Predators At Deadline

News: David Legwand was traded to the Red Wings on Wednesday in exchange for Patrick Eaves, a future third-round pick and a prospect, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: The 33-year-old David Legwand will return to his home state of Michigan as the Red Wings will rely on him to help restock their depth at center. Injuries to Henrik Zetterberg (back), Pavel Datsyuk (knee), Stephen Weiss (sports hernia) and Darren Helm (upper body) have left the team to get by with several young forwards at critical spots in the lineup, which could open the door for Legwand to assume a top-line spot upon his arrival. Legwand was tied for Nashville's team lead with 40 points on the season. He's in the final year of his contract, making him strictly a rental for the Red Wings unless the two sides agree to a long-term deal before the season concludes.

Preds' Legwand Seeing Increased Production

News: David Legwand went into the Olympic break on pace for a 55-point season. If achieved, this would be the second-highest output in his 14-year career.
Analysis: It's been a real turnaround season for the 33-year-old David Legwand, the Preds' first-ever pick from the 1998 Draft. Since the beginning of January, Legwand has not gone more than two games without registering a point, making him a very consistent scoring option. Don't be afraid to put him in your fantasy lineups once NHL play resumes.

Legwand Sparks Nashville Rally

News: David Legwand scored the tying goal with 10 seconds remaining in Friday's 3-2 overtime win against New Jersey, giving him a point in each of the last three games.
Analysis: David Legwand was the recipient of a fortuitous bounce off a point shot for an easy equalizer in the game's waning seconds. His name has been the subject of many trade rumors of late, while his game has shown him to be more valuable to his team than most fantasy leagues. Legwand's 38 points through 56 games are in line with what he typically does.

Preds' Legwand Gathers Two More Points

News: David Legwand tallied a goal and an assist -- both on the power play -- during Thursday's shootout win in Philadelphia.
Analysis: That's quite a nice encore to Tuesday's three-assist night against Calgary, giving David Legwand five points in the last two games. With three of those points coming on the man advantage, plus a pair of penalty minutes and a plus-2 rating, Legwand has produced quite the fantasy line so far this week.

Preds' Legwand Assists Thrice

News: David Legwand dished out three assists and went plus-2 in Tuesday's win over Calgary.
Analysis: He snapped a three-game pointless streak with the effort and pushed his ugly plus-minus up to a still-awful minus-10 for the year. If he doesn't keep improving that mark, it'll be the worst of his career, though he's still looking like a lock to reach 50 points.

Preds' Legwand Notches Two Points

News: David Legwand gathered a goal -- his first since Dec. 12 -- and added an assist in Tuesday's win over the Sharks.
Analysis: He'd managed just a singular assist in his last nine games. Still, David Legwand's on pace for his standard 50-ish points.

Preds' Legwand Skating Lots, Scoring Little

News: David Legwand extended his current scoreless drought to six games after failing to hit the scoresheet during Monday's 6-4 win over the Red Wings.
Analysis: It's a tough thing for fantasy owners to stomach when your guy's team goes out and scores six goals, but he doesn't even pick up a measly assist, especially after seeing a whopping 20:52 worth of ice time, including over five minutes on the power play. However, those owners who are familiar with David Legwand know that he's a streaky scorer whose production tends to come in bunches. He has a team-leading 25 points in 40 games so far this season, giving him a decent shot at cracking the 50-point mark for just the third time in his career. Bottom line here is, he continues to see huge amounts of ice time for a second-line center, so as long as that continues, the points should come. Stick with him.

Preds' Legwand Tallies Two In Win

News: David Legwand delivered a goal and an assist in Thursday's win over the Stars.
Analysis: After being stuck in a scoring drought for most of the last two weeks, David Legwand has now produced back-to-back two-point games for the Predators. His 24 points in 32 games has been generally what fantasy owners likely expected from him, although only six of those points have been goals.

Preds' Legwand Snaps Skid With Two Helpers

News: David Legwand notched two assists and went plus-2 in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Rangers.
Analysis: One of those assists came on Paul Gaustad's empty-netter, but they all count the same. The veteran center's had a fairly productive season, but had hit the skids recently, going without a point in five straight games leading up to Tuesday's contest.

Preds' Legwand Chipping In Offensively

News: David Legwand scored his fifth goal of the season during Wednesday's 4-0 win over Columbus.
Analysis: He now has 20 points in 25 games so far this season, putting him on pace for a career-high 66 points. Keep in mind, however, that he's skating fewer minutes these days, averaging about 13 minutes per night his last two games compared to his season average of about 16 minutes per game. Still, if you own him, ride him while he's hot.

News: David Legwand scored twice to pace the Preds to a 4-3 win over the Kings on Saturday night.
Analysis: He's picked up the scoring pace nicely, logging seven points (3G, 4A) in his last four games. That's worth a start recommendation.

Preds' Legwand Stuffs Stat Sheet

News: David Legwand filled up the stat sheet Thursday against Phoenix, with a goal, two assists, a plus-2 and two penalty minutes in the shootout loss.
Analysis: This was certainly the best game of the year for David Legwand, although it ended on a sour note, as he had the final shootout try for Nashville and was stopped by Thomas Greiss. Still, he's scoring a tick above his normal rate to start the year and is a solid own in deeper formats.

News: David Legwand collected two assists Thursday, including the only helper on Craig Smith's overtime-winner against the Jets.
Analysis: David Legwand's production has been spotty so far this year, as he's got a pair of two-assist games, but he has managed just one goal and two assists in his other nine games combined. He's mostly a deeper-league fantasy play.

Preds' Legwand Helps Out In Win Over Isles

News: David Legwand assisted on Seth Jones' power-play goal in the first period of Saturday's 3-2 victory over the Islanders. It was just his second point in five games so far this season.
Analysis: David Legwand's slow start shouldn't be of too much concern to fantasy owners. Though he's never been much of an offensive force, he's usually pretty dependable in terms of delivering roughly 0.6 points per game - his average over the last six seasons. If he plays a full 82-game schedule, this amounts to roughly 45-50 points. He continues to represent good value in medium to deeper fantasy formats, especially since he plays on the Preds' second scoring line with a pair of decent wingers - Viktor Stalberg and rookie Filip Forsberg.

Preds' Legwand Playing Well So Far In Camp

News: David Legwand has been impressive so far in training camp, according to the Tennessean. "He looks great," coach Barry Trotz said. "Leggy is engaged. He is playing fast. He's playing hard. He's running people over, taking hits to make plays. He's doing a lot of stuff. I'm really happy with Leggy. This will be a real, big year for him, and he looks good. He has prepared really well."
Analysis: By "real, big year", Trotz is referring to the contract year David Legwand is entering. As Legwand prepares to play play his 15th season in Nashville, there are questions about whether or not the Preds will try to keep him after this year. Throughout his career, the 33-year-old Legwand has been a strong two-way center who can chip in offensively. But he has never been the scoring star the Predators envisioned when they drafted him second overall in 1998. His best season was 2006-07 when he notched 63 points in 78 games. For now, there is certainly incentive for Legwand to put together a career season this year, and it's showing so far in camp. Give him a look if you're in a deeper fantasy format.

News: David Legwand's first-frame marker proved to be the game-winner Saturday as the Predators took out Columbus, 5-2. It's his seventh goal of the season, to go with eight assists.
Analysis: David Legwand's scoring pace is down a bit, but so is Nashville's as a whole; the team is 24th in the NHL in goal-scoring, and there are no elite skaters on the roster.

Preds' Legwand Demoted To Second Line

News: David Legwand was moved down to the second line during Friday's practice, reports the Tennessean.
Analysis: David Legwand has just a single assist in his last six games, so coach Barry Trotz is obviously looking to switch things up in the hopes that Legwand will discover some chemistry with new linemates Sergei Kostitsyn and Gabriel Bourque.
