There are few forwards that can lay claim to having scored on the legendary Vladislav Tretiak, let alone defenceman, but Winnipeg-born Barry Legge accomplished that feat in a 1978 match while playing with Cincinnati Stingers of the WHA.

Raised in St. James, Barry Legge excelled in the St. James minor hockey organization eventually graduating to the MJHL Junior Canadians in 1970 as a 15-year-old.

Never a flashy kind of player, his solid, dependable play attracted the attention of the WCHL Winnipeg Jr Jets and he stepped into their lineup at 16. He'd play another 2 years for the Jets and in 1974 was a 4th round 61st overall selection of the Montreal Canadiens and a 3rd round 34th overall selection of the Michigan Stags of the WHA.


Turning pro with the Southern Hockey Leagues Greensboro Generals, he was called up to the Stags after 37 games.

Over the next 4 seasons, Barry would play 345 games in the WHA for the Denver Spurs, Ottawa Civics, Cleveland Crusaders and Cincinnati Stingers.

After the 1979 WHA/NHL merger, Barry would join the Quebec Nordiques, before a 1980 trade that sent him to Winnipeg. Barry would retire from pro hockey after the 1982 season to start a new career with the Winnipeg Police Service where he would serve for 32 years.
