Nashville, Tenn. - Nashville Predators Executive Vice President/General Manager David Poile announced Saturday that the club has agreed to terms with restricted free-agent forward David Legwand (DAY-vihd LEHG-wahnd) on a two-year contract. Additional terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Legwand, 25 (8/17/80), was limited to 44 games due to a knee injury in 2005-06 and posted 26 points (7g-19a) for Nashville. The Detroit native tied for second on the club with five game-winning goals and the Predators posted a record of 30-9-5 with him in the lineup.

Nashville's first-ever NHL Entry Draft selection (second overall in 1998), Legwand is one of only four players to record 200 points and 400 games as a Predator. In 406 career NHL games, the 6-2, 190-pound pivot has posted 79 goals and 141 assists (79g-141a-220pts). He ranks fourth on the Predators' all-time games played and goals lists and fifth among franchise leaders in both assists and points.
