Legwand Traded To Buffalo

News: David Legwand was traded to the Sabres on Friday along with goalie Robin Lehner in exchange for the 21st overall pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.
Analysis: Lehner is the more important acquisition for the Sabres, but David Legwand at least gives an experienced mentor at center for Sam Reinhart and likely top draft pick Jack Eichel. Legwand appeared in 80 games for the Senators last season, notching nine goals and 18 assists for 27 points while averaging 13:54 of ice time. The 34-year-old is slated to make roughly $3 million next season, so his cap figure shouldn't hamstring the Sabres too much. From a fantasy perspective, Legwand doesn't have much to offer in these late stages of his career, but he's still a capable enough third- or fourth-line piece.

Sens' Legwand To Sit

News: David Legwand is slated to be scratched from the Sens' lineup Wednesday against Montreal.
Analysis: David Legwand, who notched 27 points in 80 regular season games, has not recorded a point in three playoff tilts thus far. He'll be replaced in the team's Game 4 lineup by Zack Smith.

Sens' Legwand Helps Out, Goes Plus-3 In Win

News: David Legwand captured an assist and went plus-3 in Thursday's win over the Canadiens.
Analysis: David Legwand has settled into a bottom-six role with the Senators this season, where his talent level is better suited at this stage in his career. He's only managed 24 points on the season and has only a goal and two assists since the start of February, but he remains one of the Sens' top faceoff specialists. Unfortunately, that won't translate to much fantasy value.

David Legwand, C, BUF Sens' Legwand Gathers Two Assists

David Legwand

Sens' Legwand Gathers Two Assists

News: David Legwand collected a pair of assist in Saturday's 7-2 win over the Coyotes.
Analysis: David Legwand now has seven points (one goal, six assists) in his last seven games, which qualifies as his best stretch of production all season. During that run, he was a healthy scratch for two games, so there's no guarantee he'll maintain a lineup spot despite his ample production. The inconsistency of Legwand's ice time doesn't make him particularly enticing as a fantasy option.

Sens' Legwand To Rejoin Lineup Saturday

News: David Legwand will rejoin the lineup for Saturday's game against the Coyotes, Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: A healthy scratch the past two games, David Legwand will rejoin the lineup due to an injury to Alex Chiasson (undisclosed), who is considered day-to-day. Legwand has seven goals and 12 assists in 45 games this season, with four points in his last five appearances.

1/29/2015

David Legwand, C, BUF Sens Scratch Legwand For Second Straight Game

David Legwand

Sens Scratch Legwand For Second Straight Game

News: David Legwand will be a healthy scratch for Thursday's game against the Stars, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: David Legwand had managed to compile five points in his last six games despite seeing spotty ice time, but he's now been a healthy scratch for two straight games. The Senators seem satisfied with the play of young centers Jean-Gabriel Pageau and Curtis Lazar, so until either player begins to struggle, Legwand could remain a fixture in the press box.

David Legwand, C, BUF Sens' Legwand Extends Point Streak To Five Games

David Legwand

Sens' Legwand Extends Point Streak To Five Games

News: David Legwand was credited with an assist and picked up two PIM in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Hurricanes.
Analysis: David Legwand has tallied a point in five straight games, but it's a hot streak that doesn't offer much optimism about his future production. He saw less than 10 minutes of ice time Saturday and typically slots in as a member of the team's bottom six, where scoring chances are typically scarce.

Point Streak Hits Three Games For Sens' Legwand

News: David Legwand pointed in his third straight game Tuesday against the Stars, notching a power-play assist over his 11:07 of ice time. He won only four of his 15 faceoffs (26.7 percent) in the defeat, however.
Analysis: The Senators continue to carve out time for David Legwand on the man advantage, but his lack of even-strength minutes will probably prevent him from sustaining this scoring pace much longer. Though he's averaging 14:53 of ice time for the season, Legwand has fallen below the 14-minute mark in five consecutive games.

Sens' Legwand Struggling To Produce

News: David Legwand recorded an assist in Thursday's loss to the Avalanche.
Analysis: David Legwand enjoyed a five-game point streak earlier in the first half of December, but his slate has been pretty dry ever since. His assist Thursday gives him just two points over his last 11 games.

David Legwand, C, BUF Sens' Legwand Still Streaking

David Legwand

Sens' Legwand Still Streaking

News: David Legwand improved his point streak to five games by scoring a power-play goal in Saturday's win over the Bruins.
Analysis: David Legwand's streak has flown under the radar since he's scored exactly one point in each of the games, but it's probably significant enough for deep leaguers to take notice. He's seeing ample time on the power play and should remain an important supporting cast player for Ottawa.

David Legwand, C, BUF Point Streak Goes To Three For Sens' Legwand

David Legwand

Point Streak Goes To Three For Sens' Legwand

News: David Legwand potted his fifth goal of the season in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Canucks.
Analysis: David Legwand's power-play tally came about halfway through the second period and helped ignite the Sens' comeback from a 3-0 deficit. The former No. 2 overall pick typically saves his best work for the faceoff circle, where he leads all Ottawa pivots with a 51 percent win percentage, but he's started to increase his offensive production of late as well. He's picked up a point in three straight games and five of his last six.

Sens' Legwand: Point In Each Of Last Two Games

News: David Legwand scored the Senators' only goal in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Lightning. It came on the power play.
Analysis: He's been quiet in Canada's capital, but he has finally put a point on the board in each of his last two games. It is by no means a streak, but it's better than nothing. He's had two, 50-plus point seasons in his last three years, but it doesn't look like he'll challenge that this time out. Keep him on your bench or better yet, on the waiver wire until he amps up his production.

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.
