The new owners aren't wasting any time in securing the product they purchased.

In an effort to pro-actively solidify the roster, the Nashville Predators signed David Legwand to a six-year, $27 million extension Friday morning.

Legwand became the first draft pick in franchise history back in 1998 and now, nine years later, the new ownership group makes him their first transaction.

The 6'2" center holds franchise records with 304 points, 113 goals and 28 game-winning goals while being second all-time with 510 games played and 191 assists. Last season, he posted career highs in every major offensive category including seven game-winning goals.

Legwand and the Predators hopes he'll add to all of those numbers tonight against the defending Stanley Cup Champion the Anaheim Ducks.
