David Legwand Bio

Legwand, a center from Detroit, was the first player ever drafted by the Nashville Predators and went on to set a number of team records while playing 14 of his 16 full NHL seasons with them.

The Predators chose Legwand with the No. 2 pick in the 1998 NHL Draft after a 54-goal, 105-point season with Plymouth of the Ontario Hockey League. He was sent back to Plymouth for 1998-99 but joined the Predators at the end of the season and made his NHL debut on April 17, 1999. Legwand made the Predators at training camp that fall and scored his first NHL goal against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Oct. 11, 1999.
