Numbers Game 2009: Camp Roster Set

Red Wings Central has published Detroit’s training camp roster and this year there aren’t a lot of surprises with the sweater numbers players will be wearing.

Todd Bertuzzi will keep the #44 he has worn for most of his career, including during his first stint in Detroit. Newcomer Patrick Eaves, who also typically wears that number, has taken #17.

Jason Williams, also in his second run with Detroit, returns to his familiar #29.

Depth defenseman Andy Delmore did not take the #15 he wore last time he was in camp with the Wings, instead going with #4 as his usual #5 is taken by Nicklas Lidstrom.

Doug Janik has inherited Mikael Samuelsson‘s #37, while other newcomers Kris Newbury and Jeremy Williams will wear #32 and #15, respectively.

No returning Red Wings regulars have switched numbers.
