    Legwand gives the Red Wings someone to plug in as their No. 1 centre on a banged-up roster. DETROIT - The Nashville Predators traded away their first draft pick, sending forward David Legwand to his hometown Detroit Red Wings in a deal at the NHL trade deadline Wednesday. Coming into this season, the 6-foot-2 Legwand already was the Predators' career leader in points, goals, assists, game-winning goals and overtime points. The Red Wings are without captain Henrik Zetterberg , Pavel Datsyuk , Stephen Weiss and Daniel Cleary and in need of some offensive help. "We’ve acquired a local boy, so we’re thinking if we want to keep the player beyond this year we think it's a very reasonable to happen," Detroit general manager Ken Holland told the team website.
