Gary Leeman Cracks 20, again

For the fifth time in his career, and the first time in three years, veteran Gary Leeman has eclipsed the 20-goal mark on the season.  Drafted by the Canadiens, but acquired by Winnipeg before ever dressing for a game for Montreal, Leeman has become a career Jet and a fan favourite.  Leeman now sits with 993 games, just seven shy of the 1,000 mark. Leeman is also creeping up to the 500 point milestone as he sits at 493.

Over the last couple of seasons, the Toronto native has seen his role on the team get retracted as he has seen his time cut down in the bottom six, but he has adapted nicely this year into a third line right wing role after scoring just 13 goals in 1994.

On the franchise list, Leeman now sits sixth in goals (221), sixth in games played (993) and ninth in points (493).
