2006-07: Beyond solid offensive play (43 goals in 64 game) and speed, Stefan Legein brings a certain feistiness to his game. This year marked his second consecutive year with over 100 penalty minutes to his name. Drafted in the second round (37th overall) of the 2007 NHL Draft by the Columbus Blue Jackets.
2007-08: Legein played his usual hard-nosed style, and scored at a very regular pace when he was in the lineup. Chosen to represent Canada at the U20 WJC, Legein helped the team to gold, but separated his shoulder in the gold medal game. He did not return until the end of the season, but his production did not suffer in the playoffs, where Legein was dynamite finishing tied for the team lead in scoring. Legein was an OHL Second Team All-Star for 2007-08, an impressive feat for a player who only played 30 regular season games.
2008-09: Legein "retired" from hockey at the beginning of the season before returning to play for Columbus' AHL affiliate Syracuse in mid-January. After making his pro debut with the Crunch in two Calder Cup playoff games the previous season, Legein skated in 26 games for Syracuse and scored 1 goal with 4 PMs and had a -1 plus/minus.
2009-10: Legein opened his second pro season with AHL Syracuse before being acquired by Philadelphia in a trade for defenseman Michael Ratchuk in October. In six games with Syracuse he had 2 goals with 1 assist and was an even plus/minus. After joining the Flyers' AHL affiliate Adirondack, Legein regained his scoring touch. In 71 games with the Phantoms he was second on the team with 24 goals and had 10 assists. and 48 PMs. Legein's -19 plus/minus was discouraging as the Phantoms finished last in the East Division.
2010-11: Legein was unable to build on the goal-scoring success of his first season with the Flyers' organization. Due to the early season turmoil of the Phantoms season, a nagging injury, and a brief demotion to ECHL Greenville, Legein appeared in just 41 games for the Phantoms, scoring 5 goals with 12 assists and 24 PMs. He finished the season with a -16 plus/minus as Adirondack missed the playoffs for a second straight year.
2011-12: Traded from Philadelphia to Los Angeles at the start of the season, Legein played 63 games for the Kings AHL affiliate Manchester in his fourth pro season. He scored 14 goals with 11 assists and was minus-10 with 25 penalty minutes. The Monarchs finished second in the Atlantic Division and lost to Norfolk three games to one in a first round playoff series. Legein scored 2 goals and was plus-three with 15 penalty minutes in four playoff games. He was tendered a qualifying offer by the Kings in June 2012 and signed a one-year contract with Los Angeles.
Blessed with blazing speed, the
