Penguins Prospect Legare Named QMJHL Player of the Week



NHL trade, Pittsburgh Penguins Nathan Legare

Pittsburgh Penguins prospect Nathan Legare finished a big weekend by being named the QMJHL Player of the Week. The Penguins 2019 third-round pick filled the net in two games with two hat tricks and nine points, including two game-winning goals.

The Penguins traded into the third round to select Legare. After his strong play in the NHL preseason, the Penguins signed Legare to his three-year Entry-Level Contract. Legare played in two preseason games before the Penguins assigned Legare to his junior team, Baie-Comeau. He scored two goals and had eight shots on net.

Nathan Legare, 19, is 6-foot, 206-pounds with a renowned wrist shot.  He was selected 74th overall.

This season, Legare has 33 goals and 33 assists in 54 games. It is the second consecutive season in which Legare hit the 30-goal mark. He scored 45 last season.

The Penguins 2019 first-round pick Sam Poulin has been named the QMJHL Player several times this season, including twice in a row in January. Poulin currently has 75 points, including 32 goals in 44 games. Poulin and Legare will remain the Penguins highest-rated prospects as the Penguins currently do not have a first or second-round pick 2020.

The Penguins also dealt 2018 second-round pick, defenseman Calen Addison with the 2020 first-round pick to Minnesota in the Jason Zucker trade.

Don’t worry he will be traded also for a player who can’t make the Howdy Doody at Kennywood.

But he will play the right way for sure.

Katz–Great line; I wonder how many of us really know what that means??

(Especially those of us who cheated or ragged at the ride operators when our little Mary or Tommy was just under he line?)
