The Los Angeles Kings have acquired forward Stefan Legein and a sixth-round draft choice in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft from the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for future considerations, Kings President/General Manager Dean Lombardi announced today.
Legein, who turns 24 next month, is a 5-10, 185-pound right wing from Oakville, Ontario, Canada. Last season he played for Adirondack (AHL) and Greenville (ECHL). He has played in the AHL over the last four years both with Adirondack and Syracuse. In 2009-10 he recorded 24 goals.
