In his first season as a Rochester American, David Leggio, a Williamsville, NY native, lead the way and helped the Amerks surge into the playoffs. While being selected as the team's MVP by his teammates, Leggio ended the season with a 28-24-2 record, 2.63 goals against average and a .917 save percentage.
In addition to his career-high statistics in games played (54), wins (28), minutes played (3,243) and save percentage, Leggio also led the AHL with 1,579 saves and six shootout wins.
In Leggio's career year, his 54 games were two shy of the league lead, finishing two games behind Milwaukee's Jeremy Smith and Adirondack's Michael Leighton.
Since being a part of the Sabres organization, Leggio has posted a 50 wins in the AHL and has been the cornerstone of two straight playoff runs.
The 27-year-old may be headed in the right direction with the Amerks, but in a couple of seasons, as contracts begin to expire for Sabres goaltenders, Leggio could find his way to the NHL, if only on a call-up basis.
Until the next season starts, Leggio will continue to work on his game and will press on in an attempt to make it three straight postseasons in the AHL.
