David Legwand: Retires from NHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Legwand announced his retirement from the NHL on Thursday.

The first-ever draft pick for the Predators in 1998, Legwand had a decently successful career in Nashville with his most successful campaign coming during the 2006-07 season when he posted 27 goals and 36 assists. He finishes his career with 228 goals, 390 assists, and 551 penalty minutes.

Sabres' David Legwand: Held without a goal in 19 games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Legwand has not scored since Nov. 27, and has just eight points in 39 games thus far this season.

When the Predators opted to part ways with their second overall pick in 1998, their first-ever draft pick after joining the NHL, they knew his best days were over. Now a wily veteran who's counted on for his defense and leadership, the biggest surprise this season may be how much Legwand has played this season, dressing in 39 of the Sabres' 42 games. The 35-year-old is a fourth-line player with no fantasy value.

Sabres' David Legwand: Scores first goal of the season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 captured an assist and went plus-3 in Thursday's win over the Canadiens.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.

Legwand collected a pair of assist in Saturday's 7-2 win over the Coyotes.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.

Legwand will be a healthy scratch for Thursday's game against the Stars, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.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.

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.The Senators continue to carve out time for 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.

Legwand improved his point streak to five games by scoring a power-play goal in Saturday's win over the Bruins.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.

Legwand potted his fifth goal of the season in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Canucks.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.
