Legace Picked Up By Canes

Andrew BuccellatoContributor INovember 9, 2009

Manny Legace was signed by Carolina to a one year, two-way deal for $500,000 in the big league and $105,000 when he is religated to their AHL affiliate.

This is obviously a signing to deal with the laserated thigh that Cam Ward suffered and he should get some good playing time in there before Ward is able to return (time table for the injury is just over a month according to ESPN).

Should be interesting since I figured the Thrashers had a plan to use Legace in the big club... I guess I was wrong there.

Now if only the Thrashers would get smart and sign Chelios to deal before another team does this to us and steals him from under our nose.
