      Sabres' David Legwand: Scores first goal of the season

      Legwand scored his first goal of the season late in the second period Monday against St. Louis. Legwand's tally represented Buffalo's lone goal in a tough 2-1 loss. The veteran center picked up a loose puck from the end boards and slid it backhand past Jake Allen. The 35-year-old has five points in 18 games this season and has long lost his relevance in fantasy.

      Sabres' David Legwand: Will sit out Wednesday

      Legwand will not play against Toronto on Wednesday, reports Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald. Stepping in for the veteran will be Johan Larsson, who has a higher offensive ceiling to take advantage of some shaky Toronto goaltending. Legwand's best days are behind him and has a minus-3 rating in four games.

    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
