Report: Blue Jackets draft pick Stefan Legein hanging up skates at 19

Stefan Legein, the Columbus Blue Jackets second-round pick in the 2007 NHL entry draft, has decided to quit hockey.

Legein's agent, Doug Woods, informed the Blue Jackets that the 19-year-old right winger will not report to training camp next month and is retiring, according to a report in the Columbus Dispatch. Blue Jackets general manager Scott Howson confirmed the news to the Dispatch late Tuesday night.

Legein, a native of Oakville, Ont., was an all-star with the Niagara IceDogs of the Ontario Hockey League last season, scoring 24 goals and adding 13 assists with 80 penalty minutes in 30 games. He also helped Canada win its fourth straight gold medal at the world junior championship.
