Legein of Doom

Stefan Legein
Country: Canada
Position: RW
League: OHL
Team: Mississauga IceDogs
Height: 5'9''
Weight: 170
Shoots: Right
Scouting Report: Forget all the one dimensional labels you have heard, Mississauga's charming RW is a very complete player .. a somewhat rough skater around the edges but has effective speed .. played PK with Caputi .. is a PK threat showcasing speed, quick hands, and skill.. has an enduring motor and will to compete .. a small guy whose fire makes his size irrelevant .. looks a bit light on his skates .. a good passer and makes sound decisions with the puck .. a dangerous forward with a healthy combination of anticipation, stickwork, and hustle .. great forechecker is routinely first to puck and shows no fear when defensemen line him up .. surprisingly is always mindful of not getting caught too deep while pressuring .. consistently yaps and loves to get involved in scrums .. dishes out checks but is selective in expending his energy .. knows when to shoot and when to pass especially on the PP .. played with Caputi and Owens on the man advantage .. Oakville native needs to show more go-to dominance offensively, add more weight, and smooth out his skating .. an under appreciated winger in this year’s draft who will get better with maturity.
2006-2007 Regular Season Stats

Draft Day Status/Projection: Legein is one of DraftBuzz's favorites and acknowledge he may even be too low in May's ranking at 30. Much more than a "pest," Legein has all of the parts to make it in the NHL as a great supporting top six line player ala modern day Sean Avery. We think he may surprise on draft day and can see him going in the 15-35 range to a team who needs a multitool, resilient player.
