Overview:
Stefan Legein is a smaller right wing that has good skills with the puck and an ability to put up good offensive numbers while maintaining responsibility in his own end. Legein’s biggest assets are his speed and his energetic style of play, making him a good forechecker and agitator. He is listed 13th on Central Scouting’s list of North American skaters, up from 32nd in the midterm rankings.

Although he has an accurate shot and is not afraid of physical contact, Legein could improve on the strength of his shot and has to cut down on the number of penalties he takes in order to improve.

Legein was one of 40 draft-eligible prospects selected to participate in the 2007 CHL Top Prospects Game; was named to the OHL Eastern Conference All-Star Team in 2007 – he won the fastest skater competition with a lap time of 14.109 seconds and tallied three points in the game; and was 11th among all OHL players with 43 goals in 64 games in 2006-07.

The Flyers say…
Stefan Legein is a smaller player, but very competitive. He has a real good stick and can play both ends of the ice. He’s always around the puck. He’s a smart, competitive little guy who always seems to be where the action is.”
– Director of Hockey Operations Chris Pryor
