David Legwand Autographed Card

It was a long time coming, perhaps even a season late, but former Nashville Predators second-overall draft pick (1998) David Legwand has announced his retirement.

All told, he played 956 regular-season games with the Preds, scoring 210 goals with 356 assists for 566 points - all standing team records. He also suited up in 47 postseason games with Nashville, with 13 goals and 15 assists (28 points) to show for it, including a three-season run where he accumulated 11 goals, 11 assists and 22 points in 28 playoff games.

The Predators traded him to the Detroit Red Wings at the tail end of the 2013-14 season, enabling him to play for his hometown team. He then spent a year each with the Ottawa Senators and Buffalo Sabres before calling it a career earlier today.

At told, he retires with 618 points in 1136 games.

Here he is wearing the Preds' early white (then-home) uniform, on card #32 from Upper Deck's 2000-01 Black Diamond set:
He signed it in thin black sharpie when he was with the Sens, with whom he scored 9 goals with 18 assists (good for 27 points) in 80 games, mostly spent centering the third line.
