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.

Legwand was a central figure in Thursday's comeback victory over the Avalanche, recording a goal and assist in the 5-3 win.

After the Sens fell behind 3-1 in the first period, Legwand cut the deficit to one goal with Ottawa riding the man advantage. The Sens would then feast on the Avs' No. 3 goalie, Dennis Everberg, in the third period, scoring three unanswered goals, with Legwand assisting on the ultimate one. Legwand figures to remain in a bottom-six role for the Senators this season, but he should offer a little more scoring ability than the average third- or fourth-line center.

The signing of David Legwand should take away some pressure from Kyle Turris and Mika Zibanejad.

Legwand believes he can serve as the team's second-line center and GM Bryan Murray likes his versatility. "David is a good veteran center, a guy who skates pretty well and gets up and down the ice," Murray said in an audio statement. "He's an experienced guy who can fit in either at the top or bottom of the lineup. He has been a captain and a leader, so we know we're getting a good person." Legwand generated 14 goals and 51 points in 83 games between Nashville and Detroit last campaign.

There is a chance that newly-signed center David Legwand could play alongside winger Bobby Ryan this upcoming season.

Clarke MacArthur, the Sens' other natural left winger has developed chemistry with top pivot Kyle Turris, so it seems logical that the club's other top port-sider would line up with Legwand, who is slated to be Ottawa's second-line center. Although neither is a star, the Legwand-Ryan duo could be surprisingly effective.

The Ottawa Senators have signed David Legwand to a two-year, $6 million contract.

Legwand had 14 goals and 51 points in 83 games with Detroit and Nashville last season. He can't hope to fill the void left by Jason Spezza, but he is a solid top-two center and is actually something of a bargain at that price. He will earn $2.5 million next season and $3.5 million in 2015-16.

David Legwand remains a coveted commodity on the NHL unrestricted free agent market despite having not signed a deal in the initial 36-hour frenzy.

Legwand is a bulky and experienced two-way center, and although his offensive numbers are not anything to rave about, the 33 year-old veteran plays responsible defense and still notched 51 points last season. TSN's Aaron Ward reports 8-10 teams are interested in Legwand's services, while the Maple Leafs are scrambling to replace Dave Bolland and Jay McClement, who both signed elsewhere.
