The full roster is duplicated below but now for a look at the jersey numbers…
Between the team’s announcement of new numbers for incoming players (and Jake Walman’s switch from #8 to #96) last month and the Prospects Tournament roster, most of these numbers were already known.
Aside from Walman, no players who were with the Red Wings last year have changed jersey numbers.
Only one player who appeared in last year’s training camp is coming back with a new number. Jared McIsaac switches to the #41 last worn by Luke Glendening in the 2021 season, as the #3 he’d been wearing has been given to Simon Edvinsson. McIsaac had also previously worn #63 in camps.
A trio of players are making their first appearances in a Detroit camp after signing with the Grand Rapids Griffins. All three were assigned numbers worn by players who appeared in the Red Wings’ development camp over the summer but are not present at the main camp. Joel L’Esperance is wearing the #67 worn by Redmond Savage. Cedric Lacroix is wearing the #75 previously worn by Drew Bavaro. Finally, goalie John Lethemon has the #68 that was assigned to Connor Murphy.
