When David Legwand signed with the Ottawa Senators it was the classic case of a team filling a desperate need. Now Legwand hopes he can help help fill some big shoes.

Legwand spoke with Chris Lund of the Senators website and outlined what he thinks he can do for Ottawa.

“I think I can take up the second line center spot and play good minutes for the team and help out in all areas of the game,” Legwand said. “Whether it’s the power play or penalty kill or 5-on-5 I think I can help and helping out with the young guys who are just coming in. They’ve got some solid prospects in their system that are up and coming too.”
