About David Legwand

David Legwand (born August 17, 1980) is an American professional ice hockey player currently playing for the Nashville Predators of the National Hockey League (NHL). Legwand attended Grosse Pointe North High School. He played his junior career with the Plymouth Whalers of the OHL. In the season before he was drafted, he scored 54 goals along with 51 assists, totaling 105 points. He also won the Red Tilson Award as the most outstanding player in the league. This raised his profile to the NHL scouts and led to him being drafted 2nd overall by the Predators in 1998, behind NHL All-Star Vincent Lecavalier. He was briefly called up late in the team's inaugural season, and has spent his entire NHL career with the Predators. He currently holds virtually every franchise record for the Predators, including most games played, goals, assists, and points. Through the 2011-12 season, he has 501 points in 846 career NHL games.
