RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Stefan Legein.
Legein plays a pretty gritty game despite his size (5-10, 185 lb), but doesn't fgure to give the Kings anything more than organizational depth as injury insurance. The Kings have plenty of grinders in their system, so Legein will need to separate himself from the herd in training camp to land a role with the Kings.
Legein inked a one-year deal to remain with the Kings this offseason after scoring 14 goals and picking up 11 assists in 63 games for the team's AHL affiliate in Manchester. He'll give the Monarchs a gritty presence in a checking role, but doesn't figure to factor into the Kings' plans unless he really opens some eyes in training camp.
Legein, a second-round pick in 2007, has not been able to produce much in the minors for the Flyers. He's still relatively young at 23 years old, but the winger does not look to be very close to joining Philly in the near future.
Legein, who 'retired' in 2008, will give the Flyers depth at the AHL level and could see some time eventually with the parent club.
Scored just one goal in 26 games with AHL Syracuse after returning to hockey following his surprise retirement the year before.
Retired for personal reasons.
Potential future third line pest.
Legein brings it, night in and night out -- he doesn't take a second off when he's at the rink and that's a dang good thing when you're barely 5'9". Yes, his scoring output in 2006-2007 tripled his previous season but it was his sandpaper, in-your-face agitation that made him a darling in Mississauga. Sure, he scored 43 goals in 64 games for the Ice Dogs but don't expect him to be a prolific scorer in the NHL. He's a pest, through and through, and he has slightly above average skills... for a pest, that is.
