Red Wings Announce New Jersey Numbers


The Detroit Red Wings announced a slate of new jersey numbers via social media on Wednesday.

Two players who were with the Red Wings last season have new numbers, as Simon Edvinsson goes from #3 to #77 and Jonatan Berggren switches from #52 to the #48 made available by Givani Smith’s midseason trade to the Florida Panthers.

Additionally, Jared McIsaac – who has yet to make his NHL debut – moves on to his fourth number with the organization, switching from #41 (after previously having been assigned #63 and #3) to #15.   John Lethemon, now under contract with Detroit rather than just a free agent invite to camp, will wear the #31 that had been assigned to Carter Gylander in development camp, switching from the #68 he wore in training camp last fall.  Carter Mazur, who has been assigned #43 in Detroit camps, switches to #32.  Wyatt Newpower goes from #47 to #62.

As previously-announced, free agent signee Daniel Sprong takes #88, as his usual #11 was not available when he was acquired, while trade acquisition Alex DeBrincat will wear #93 with his usual #12 retired.

The rest of the announced numbers are assigned to players who signed with the Red Wings over the summer.

Justin Holl takes the #3 abandoned by Edvinsson.  Klim Kostin takes the #24 previously worn by Pius Suter.  Alex Lyon will wear the #34 that had been assigned to Victor Brattstrom.  Christian Fischer gets the #36 worn in development camp by Jan Bednar.  J.T. Compher gets #37, which had been assigned to Alexandre Doucet in development camp.  Tim Gettinger will wear the #39 that formerly belonged to Alex Nedeljkovic.  Shayne Gostisbehere takes the #41 that had been assigned to McIsaac.  Nolan Stevens gets #42, last worn by Kyle Criscuolo.  James Reimer gets #47 from Newpower.  Brogan Rafferty gets the #52 abandoned by Berggren.

Shameless self-promotion: I’d guessed a bunch of these about a week and a half ago.
