Just as we wished the Captain a Happy Birthday three days ago, it's time to light the candles on the cake for the longest-serving player in Nashville Predators history, David Legwand, who turns 32. Just check out the list of franchise career leaders over at Hockey-Reference.com, and he's atop the leaderboard in a number of categories:
- Games Played (846)
- Goals (188), Assists (313), Total Points (501) - Nice... 501 Broadway, 501 points!
- Short-handed Goals (10, second behind Greg Johnson)
- Game-Winning Goals (37)
So give it up for Leggy, a guy who has settled into a nice career as one of the core players on a consistently competitive team year-in, year-out. Kick back and enjoy a few highlights from #11 (trust me, it's worth hanging in there for all of them):
My question to you this morning is... how high might Legwand's career numbers climb? Does he have a shot at milestone achievements such as 300 goals, or 1,000 points?
