Stefan Legein will definitely not be attending Blue Jackets' training camp.
However, he may loosen his stance on retirement after some much needed time off. "In my opinion, Stefan just wants to take a break," his agent Doug Woods said. "He's tired from all the things he's gone through the last two seasons, all the tournaments, the games, the shoulder injury ... all that stuff. He feels like he needs some time and space." Legein is not suffering any health issues, but he has apparently lost his energy and drive to be a hockey player, which if you saw him play would leave you scratching your head. He is as energetic and feisty as they come on the ice. Woods believes Legein will plat hockey again though. "I think we're dealing with a case of burnout here," he said. "You can't be filled with that much passion for the sport of hockey and decide, right like that, that you're done with it. I think he's going to play again. In fact, I think when the frost hits the ground, he's going to get the itch."
