LEGUE MOVING ON UP

November 1, 2012

Sheffield Steelers press release 

It took Jeff Legue just two minutes and 49 seconds to obtain his first point of the night against Coventry. The assist on Colin Shields' first goal was a special point as it took him to 425 in a Steelers jersey.

The magic number took him into fourth place in all-time Steelers scoring behind Ron Shudra, Steve Nemeth and Ken Priestlay.

Legue started the season in sixth place also behind Tim Cranston and Tony Hand but has overtaken them both in recent weeks.

"It's a great honour," said Legue. "I had no idea on these numbers until last week. 

"I see the names of these players I am passing on shirts hanging in the rafters. These are special Steelers players who have played a huge part in the club's history. To be up there alongside them of course is special. 

"I feel this is my club, I've played here longer than I have anywhere else in my career. I love Sheffield and love being a Steeler. Being a part of the club's history makes me feel very proud."


Legue is now on 428 points, scoring 185 goals and 243 assists in 336 games since joining the club in 2007.
