Stefan Legein Fan Club/is my hero

Scoring 2 goals in 2 games and helping Canada come up with a 2-0 lead in the Super Series. Also, apparently Mr. Kyle Turris (yes it's true I am in his fan club...known as Flunky #1...be jealous...VERY jealous.) has scored 2 goals as well. Anyway I think I may have to start my own Stefan Legein fan club....anyone want to join? Come on let me know...

COLUMBUS, OHIO – Columbus Blue Jackets prospect Stefan Legein scored his second goal in as many games to help Team Canada claim the second game of the Canada Russia Super Series, 3-0, over Team Russia in Ufa, Russia today. Maxim Mayorov, the Blue Jackets' fifth pick, 94th overall, in the 2007 Entry Draft was scoreless for Team Russia, while goaltender Steve Mason, Columbus' second pick, 69th overall in the 2006 Entry Draft, did not play.

Legein, the club's second pick, 37th overall in the 2007 Entry Draft, scored his second goal of the series late in the second period to give Canada a 2-0 lead. He was whistled for six penalty minutes in the game, as well. Kyle Turris and David Perron also scored for Canada, who outshot Russia 38-23.

The Canada Russia Super Series is an eight-game series between the two countries under-20 teams. It was set up to commemorate the 1972 Summit Series between the teams. The series first four games are being played in Russia (Ufa and Omsk), while the final four games will be played in Canada (Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Red Deer and Vancouver). The series continues with the third game on Friday, Aug. 31 at 8 a.m. ET.
I love that Legein is proving himself over there. Mirtle has a post up about the Super Series as well...you should check it out. Go Canada :)

so umm basically Stefan Legein is such an awesome player, so much heart and drive that guy has. I love how when in the last game of the super series ( when the fight broke out), he was the one picking up everyones stuff, while you could tell he really wanted to be on the ice at that time and taking part in it. He's such a fighter and what a cutie!
