You can hide legend markers using CSS:

.highcharts-legend-item .highcharts-point, .highcharts-legend-item .highcharts-graph { display: none }

Then set useHTML in legend and insert your own HTML using labelFormatter:

legend: { useHTML: true, labelFormatter: function() { return "<img src='https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/538262176134221824/Vx4_Psj1_400x400.png' width='20' height='20'> " + this.name } }

To make the legend look better move all items a little bit to the left:

this.legend.allItems.forEach(function(item) { item.legendItem.attr({ x: item.legendItem.x - 10 }); });
