David Legwand played almost 1,000 games in the NHL wearing jersey No. 11 for the Nashville Predators. But when he signed with the Ottawa Senators this summer, he wasnt going to take his old number back even though it was technically available. Yeah, I mean Alfie wore it forever and its going to go into the rafters here one day as it should. Hes a phenomenal hockey player and its just something you just dont do as a hockey player. It never even crossed my mind, Legwand told me yesterday. Instead, Legwand is going to wear No. 17 for the Senators this season - the same number he wore when he joined the Detroit Red Wings for the final 21 games of the regular season last year. He probably would have taken jersey No. 11 with the Red Wings - except it was already being used by Alfredsson. Legwand says hes not a superstitious guy, but he chose No. 17 now because thats a jersey number he used to wear as a kid. But here in Ottawa, No. 17 hasnt brought a whole lot of luck to any forwards who have worn that sweater number in recent years. In fact, the last forward to wear No. 17 for the Senators for an entire season was Bill Muckalt, who infamously went the entire 2001-02 campaign without scoring a single goal in 70 games. Since then, Denis Hamel was the only other forward to wear No. 17, producing four goals in 43 games in the 2006-07 season when he was shuttled between Binghamton and Ottawa. (It should be noted that defenceman Filip Kuba wore the jersey for parts of four seasons in between). Looking at the last few forwards to wear No. 17 for the Senators, you will notice a distinct trend: Denis Hamel (2006-07): 4 goals in 43 games Bill Muckalt (2001-02): 0 goals in 70 games Eric Lacroix (2000-01) 0 goals in 9 games Colin Forbes (2000-01) 0 goals in 39 games Colin Forbes (1999-00) 2 goals in 45 games Chris Murray (1998-99): 1 goal in 38 games Thats a total of only seven goals scored in 244 games by forwards wearing this jersey number in the last 15 seasons. Or about one in every 35 games - which means if that curse continues, Legwand would score two - or maybe three - goals this season. However, the smart money is on Legwand having a nice offensive season for the Sens, considering he is coming off a 51-point season last year. Somewhere between 12-15 goals seems like a realistic target for Legwand, who will start the season on the Sens first power play unit. Thats a far cry from Muckalts 2001-02 season, when Roger Neilson - who coached the team for the final two regular season games - put him on the clubs top power play unit in the regular season finale in an attempt to buy Muckalt a goal. That strategy proved fruitless for Muckalt, but Paul MacLean seems very confident in Legwands ability to help the Senators power play. The Sens head coach likes the diversity of having some left-handed shots like Legwand and MacArthur on the first unit power play and believes that Legwand was a driving force in the Senators scoring five goals with the man-advantage in their final two pre-season games. I think David had a lot to do with getting it organized and having things done. Along with Erik, I think the two of them really took charge and said, Listen, heres what were going to do and they went on the ice and did it, MacLean said. Legwand will make his Sens debut on Thursday night in Nashville in a building he is very familiar with, having been the Predators first draft pick back in 1998. This will mark the first time hes been back in the city since the trade that sent him to Detroit on deadline day last spring, although he doesnt sound like he will be too emotional. Its weird going back. Getting traded at 2pm eastern time, I think I was out of there at 7pm and I havent been back since, Legwand told reporters yesterday. Its interesting - its kind of a chapter that is over in our lives and weve moved on. Jahlil Okafor Jersey . After deputy commissioner Bill Daly said the league would consider pulling out of Sochi if something "significant" happens before players arrive, those set to participate are trying not to worry about that scenario. Richaun Holmes Jersey . According to TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun, Brodeurs agent Pat Brisson has spoken to six teams so far regarding the veteran goaltender. http://www.authentic76ersauthority.com/darryl-dawkins-76ers-jersey-c-9/. In this space, I will be writing new and unique pieces about the team that you wont be able to find anywhere else. So naturally, in an attempt to come up with a fresh topic about the Ottawa Senators, I am going to start with a piece about their goaltending. Joel Embiid Jersey . According to the CFL Scouting Bureaus January rankings, four of the top five Canadian prospects line-up on the offensive side of the trenches, which is good news for Bombers general manager Kyle Walters. With only one selection in the first two rounds Walters sent his second-round pick to Saskatchewan in the days ahead of the 2013 trade deadline the No. Robert Covington Jersey . Louis and Ryan Kesler have demanded to be traded.NASHVILLE - Daniel Briere and the Montreal Canadiens hope to put their offensive struggles to rest on Saturday night when they resume their road trip against the Nashville Predators. You can also listen to the game live on TSN 690 Montreal at 7pm et/4pm pt. The Habs have lost four of their past six games and opened up a six-game swing with Thursdays 5-1 setback to the St. Louis Blues. Briere returns after sitting out Thursdays loss as a healthy scratch. Brendan Gallagher scored his first goal in 12 games, giving him 10 on the season, and Carey Price allowed five scores on 29 shots faced. The setback marked the fifth time in Montreals past six games it has scored one goal or fewer. "Were making simple mistakes that we shouldnt be making," said Montreal winger Brian Gionta. "Were not supporting each other. Were not backing each other up and ... thats just not the way we need to be playing." Montreals offense also failed to come through in an earlier meeting with Nashville, which picked up a 2-1 road victory back on Oct. 19. Gallagher had the lone goal on that day and the Habs wasted Prices 35 saves. Price remained winless in his career versus the Predators despite the solid outing, falling to 0-3-0 with a 2.dddddddddddd35 goals against average in three meetings. Nashville, which got goals from defensemen Seth Jones and Shea Weber, is 3-0-1 in its past four versus Montreal and 3-1-2 with a tie all-time against the franchise at home. The Preds will try to bounce back from their seventh loss in 10 games, a 4-2 setback at the hands of the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday. Craig Smith scored twice for Nashville, with each tally making it a one-goal game, but Tampa Bay responded with a goal shortly after both times. "They took some momentum away by scoring just after we did," Smith said. "They are a good team, but so are we. They can do some good things and so can we. They came out on top tonight and converted their chances." Carter Hutton allowed four goals on just 14 shots before he was pulled in favor of Marek Mazanec in the second period. Mazanec made 19 saves in the setback. Neither Hutton or Mazanec have ever faced the Canadiens. Injured goaltender Pekka Rinne made 28 saves in the first meeting of the season.
