Legwand captured an assist and went plus-3 in Thursday's win over the Canadiens.

Legwand has settled into a bottom-six role with the Senators this season, where his talent level is better suited at this stage in his career. He's only managed 24 points on the season and has only a goal and two assists since the start of February, but he remains one of the Sens' top faceoff specialists. Unfortunately, that won't translate to much fantasy value.

Legwand collected a pair of assist in Saturday's 7-2 win over the Coyotes.

Legwand now has seven points (one goal, six assists) in his last seven games, which qualifies as his best stretch of production all season. During that run, he was a healthy scratch for two games, so there's no guarantee he'll maintain a lineup spot despite his ample production. The inconsistency of Legwand's ice time doesn't make him particularly enticing as a fantasy option.

Legwand will rejoin the lineup for Saturday's game against the Coyotes, Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun reports.

A healthy scratch the past two games, Legwand will rejoin the lineup due to an injury to Alex Chiasson (undisclosed), who is considered day-to-day. Legwand has seven goals and 12 assists in 45 games this season, with four points in his last five appearances.

Legwand will be a healthy scratch for Thursday's game against the Stars, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Legwand had managed to compile five points in his last six games despite seeing spotty ice time, but he's now been a healthy scratch for two straight games. The Senators seem satisfied with the play of young centers Jean-Gabriel Pageau and Curtis Lazar, so until either player begins to struggle, Legwand could remain a fixture in the press box.

Legwand was credited with an assist and picked up two PIM in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Hurricanes.

Legwand has tallied a point in five straight games, but it's a hot streak that doesn't offer much optimism about his future production. He saw less than 10 minutes of ice time Saturday and typically slots in as a member of the team's bottom six, where scoring chances are typically scarce.

Legwand pointed in his third straight game Tuesday against the Stars, notching a power-play assist over his 11:07 of ice time. He won only four of his 15 faceoffs (26.7 percent) in the defeat, however.

The Senators continue to carve out time for Legwand on the man advantage, but his lack of even-strength minutes will probably prevent him from sustaining this scoring pace much longer. Though he's averaging 14:53 of ice time for the season, Legwand has fallen below the 14-minute mark in five consecutive games.

Legwand recorded an assist in Thursday's loss to the Avalanche.

Legwand enjoyed a five-game point streak earlier in the first half of December, but his slate has been pretty dry ever since. His assist Thursday gives him just two points over his last 11 games.

Legwand improved his point streak to five games by scoring a power-play goal in Saturday's win over the Bruins.

Legwand's streak has flown under the radar since he's scored exactly one point in each of the games, but it's probably significant enough for deep leaguers to take notice. He's seeing ample time on the power play and should remain an important supporting cast player for Ottawa.

Legwand potted his fifth goal of the season in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Canucks.

Legwand's power-play tally came about halfway through the second period and helped ignite the Sens' comeback from a 3-0 deficit. The former No. 2 overall pick typically saves his best work for the faceoff circle, where he leads all Ottawa pivots with a 51 percent win percentage, but he's started to increase his offensive production of late as well. He's picked up a point in three straight games and five of his last six.

Legwand scored the Senators' only goal in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Lightning. It came on the power play.

He's been quiet in Canada's capital, but he has finally put a point on the board in each of his last two games. It is by no means a streak, but it's better than nothing. He's had two, 50-plus point seasons in his last three years, but it doesn't look like he'll challenge that this time out. Keep him on your bench or better yet, on the waiver wire until he amps up his production.
