Manny Legace is happy to be playing for AHL Springfield, although he's still hoping to get a shot with the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Given that goaltenders Mark Dekanich and Curtis Sanford are hurt, it wouldn't be surprising if Legace gets called up at some point during the next couple of weeks. Legace's professional career started with Springfield during the 1994-95 season. He has gone on to post a 2.41 GAA and .912 save percentage in 365 career NHL games since then.

Manny Legace has agreed to a professional tryout with AHL Springfield.

"We asked him to come to Springfield and he was excited by the opportunity," Columbus GM Scott Howson said. "He gives us stability right now." The Jackets are expected to bring up Allen York from the minors to serve as Steve Mason's backup on Friday.

Manny Legace has parted ways with the Vancouver Canucks.

Legace was in Vancouver camp on a professional tryout, but when the Canucks told him Friday that he would not play again in the pre-season, he opted to leave the team and look elsewhere for employment. "We gave him the opportunity to stay with us and practise but he decided to see if there was something else out there," coach Alain Vigneault said. "He did a good job and I'm hoping this will maybe permit him to come back in the league."

Manny Legace will report to the Vancouver Canucks' training camp on a tryout basis.

Legace obviously won't beat out Roberto Luongo or Cory Schneider for a roster spot, but he could start the season in the AHL as the Canucks' insurance policy in case one of their two top netminders get injured. Legace had a 2.51 GAA and .919 save percentage in 40 games with the Deutsche Eishockey Liga's Iserlohn Roosters.

Manny Legace will not make the New York Islanders' opening day roster.

Legace joined the Islanders' training camp on a tryout basis, but he was never expected to make the team. Legace didn't start the 2009-10 season in the NHL either, but he still managed to play in 30 games with the Carolina Hurricanes. We wouldn't be surprised if he finds a way onto an NHL team again this season.

Manny Legace has been invited to the New York Islanders' training camp.

Legace spent the majority of the 2009-10 season as Cam Ward's understudy in Carolina. However, injuries to Ward resulted in Legace playing in 30 NHL contests. Legace isn't expected to make the Islanders' opening day roster, but that could change if Rick DiPietro suffers a setback.

The Carolina Hurricanes aren't expected to re-sign Manny Legace.

Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford has already informed Legace that they've decided to start the 2010-11 season with Justin Peters as their number two goaltender. Legace had a 2.89 GAA and .904 save percentage in 30 games last season. He's 37 years old and his value is dwindling, but Legace doesn't want to think about retirement yet. He should be able to find a team that would be interested in using him as a backup goaltender.

Manny Legace would like to re-sign with the Carolina Hurricanes.

Legace signed a one-year, two-way contract with Carolina in November and he went onto post a 2.89 GAA and .904 save percentage in 30 games. Legace turned 37 in February and it's safe to say his career is winding down, but he doesn't want to think about retirement left. According to Legace, he'd like to play "until they tell me the fat goalie can't play anymore. The game is still fun."
