By the Numbers: David Legwand

By The Numbers will highlight the Red Wings on-ice accomplishments in the 2013-14 season. Each week during the off-season, By The Numbers will profile a different player on the team, focusing on their statistical highs and lows. This week we focus on center David Legwand.


The number of regular-season games he played between Nashville and Detroit.  The Red Wings acquired him at the trade deadline. He’s the only player in the past two seasons to play a greater number of games than the NHL schedule.


The total points he produced in 21 regular-season games since joining the Red Wings at the NHL trade deadline. Only Gustav Nyquist (20), Tomas Tatar (13), Daniel Alfredsson (12) and Riley Sheahan (12) produced more points between March 6 and the April 13 season finale in St. Louis.


Equaled his season-high point total during his second game with the Red Wings in a 7-4 victory against New Jersey at Joe Louis Arena on March 7. His first Wings’ goal came after he stole the puck in the Devils’ zone and slapped a rebound past goalie Cory Schneider at 4:48 of the third period. Legwand also assisted on second-period goals by Johan Franzen and Gustav Nyquist.


The number of shots that he fired at Tampa Bay goalie Ben Bishop in a 3-2 home win at Joe Louis Arena on March 30. Legwand had a goal and an assist in the game for his third and final multi-point performance of the season with the Red Wings. It was also the eighth time he’s had six shots in a game, the most he’s registered in a game in the past five seasons.


In his 14th NHL season, Legwand collected a career-high number of assists, including seven in the final five-plus weeks of the campaign with the Red Wings. The 37 assists are the most he’s had since 1998-99 – his final OHL season when he picked up 49 helpers for the Plymouth Whalers.


Is his career-best number of power-play goals in a single season. Three of his power-play goals in the 2013-14 season were also game-winners, including the second-period tip of a Johan Franzen shot that helped beat the Lightning on March 30. The Red Wings were 2-0 and Nashville was 3-1 when Legwand scored a PPG.
