Nashville Predators center David Legwand just scored his 200th NHL goal. In the late stages of the first period in tonight’s game against the Calgary Flames, the original draft pick of the Predators stuffed a Shea Weber blast past Miikka Kiprusoff for his team-leading 12th goal of the year, giving him 200 in his career. Young swedish phenom Filip Forsberg tallied his first NHL point on the goal. Recently traded winger Martin Erat is second on the all-time list with 163 but captain Shea Weber is the closest active-Predator with 107. Not only was he the team’s first draft pick but the Detroit, Michigan, native has played at least one game in every Predators season since the team’s inception. He scored his first goal against the Toronto Maple Leafs in his fifth ever game on October 11, 1999. It would prove to be the game-winner. The only two teams that Legwand hasn’t scored against are the Philadelphia Flyers and Atlanta Thrashers/Winnipeg Jets. — PHOTO CREDIT: Sarah Fuqua (used with p...
