Blackhawks Announce New Player Numbers

So three of the four players acquired in the Brandon Saad trade have a number. Poor Jeremy Morin, whose old number – 11 – is on Andrew Desjardins currently. Probably an indication of how long he’ll be “in Chicago”…

  1. We’ll probably throw Morin into whichever deal we make for Sharp. Some are saying he’s going to the Panthers, some saying Montreal. SB needs to move fast if we intend to keep Oduya and Kruger.

  2. Think I’ll just take Jerome Dupont off my 25 jersey and replace it with Tropp, just kidding, I was never dumb enough to buy a Dupont jersey, but know somebody who was.

  3. Panarin is already listed on the Hawks “Players in the system” list as #72. I think it’s interesting that they didn’t announce the number for Tikhonov who wore #10 in the KHL … hmmm …

  4. So getting into the swing of things with these new numbers:


    (assuming Sharp and Bickell are gonzo)

  5. Broker…………If you want to feel a little better, go to some CBJ media reports and see the comments. Yes they like Saad, but many many fans think CBJ broke even at best. Dano had become a fan favorite there and they say he will here as well. Also there are many critics of 6 years and $36mm deal for a guy whose PPG totals have barely budged in the past 3 seasons. That said I am sad as well.

  6. I wonder how tied into #86 TT is because now that Saad is gone TT’s old #20 is available.

    If the Hawks won’t hand out #10, I wonder why Tikhonov didn’t get a number assigned. I gotta think he is going to by on the Hawks and not in Rockford.

  7. Thanks Mike. I actually don’t mind the trade. I watched some video of Dano and I believe he will become a fan favorite. Bowman did not do a bad job based on the circumstances.

  8. Nordstrom is also unsigned and that was Anisimov’s number. Also, didn’t make mention of a Versteeg number change. Although, we probably know the reasoning behind that.

    All in all, I think we’re reading WAY too much into it. Here come the doldrums of the off season, filled with anticipation of the inevitable.

  9. Teravainen takes another number or keeps 86 for long time. Do not mess with 88 and 86, eh. Theres significant meaningfulness behind the whole thing.

  10. And here I was looking forward to referring to Dano as the mini-fridge. Very disappointing.

  11. Very disappointed that Tropp was acquired and even more sad he was issued a number. I never want to see that dirty shit bag in a Hawks uniform. Here is a video of the sort of character he has…note the 2 on 1 attack with Tropp taking a 2-hander at the skull of a player that just came back from a fractured skull…you only see what he did in the last view.


  12. Espoforever please, you obviously never played hockey in a real game. Having played and coached young players for 20 years, the heat or th battle the dont always make the right or best decision. Hockey is a chippy, dirty sport to begin with how many times do you see a player take a two handed slash to wrist? Every game. You no I know what his intent was. Hockey is physical, they need that to vent frustration , having said that this kid should have been tossed for his whack attempt. Doubtful h makes hawks, but we need more gritty players. Especially with the make up of this hawks team, aside from seabs, and shaw and Bickel not much physical play, an desy.

  13. I played hockey for 41 years and have seen all matter of BS in my day. There is never an excuse for a choreographed attack. That is pre-meditation. MSU obviously agreed with me as they voluntarily kicked both players off the team for a whole season.
