Stefan Legein (born November 24, 1988) is a Canadian former professional ice hockey right winger. He was drafted by the Columbus Blue Jackets in the 2nd round, 37th overall of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.
Legein spent most of his junior career in the OHL, playing only one year in another league, the Ontario Provincial Junior A Hockey League (OPJHL) before being drafted by the Columbus Blue Jackets. Legein participated in the 2007 CHL Top Prospects Game and the OHL Eastern Conference All-Star Team in 2007, where he won the fastest skater competition, completing a single lap in 14.109 seconds. He also recorded 3 points in the game (2 goals, 1 assist). Prior to the 2008-09 season, Legein made headlines following his announcement to retire from the game though no official reason was announced, later that season, he announced that he would like to return to the game and joined the Syracuse Crunch of the AHL for the remainder of the season.
On October 20, 2009, Legein was traded by the Blue Jackets to the Philadelphia Flyers for fellow minor leaguer, Mike Ratchuk. Stefan Legein was later traded on October 12, 2011 by the Philadelphia Flyers, along with a 2012 6th round draft pick, to the Los Angeles Kings for future considerations.
On October 5, 2013, the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League signed Legein to a professional tryout contract. In the 2013–14 season, Legein appeared in 7 games with the Marlies before opting to sign for the remainder of the season in Sweden with VIK Västerås HK of the second division, HockeyAllsvenskan. In the following season, Legein belatedly signed in Germany with DEL2 club, Heilbronner Falken.
On September 2, 2015, Legein returned to the United States and signed a one-year contract with Los Angeles Kings now ECHL affiliate, the Manchester Monarchs. He ended his career playing semi-professionally for the Stoney Creek Generals who compete for the Allan Cup in the 2016–17 season.
