Trading players, Trading Numbers ….

Two new faces, four new numbers. Busy day for Penguins equipment manager Dana Heinze.

Brendon Morrow will wear number 10.

Tanner Glass will switch to  number 15.

Dustin Jeffrey will change to number 17.

Douglas Murray will dress on Thursday night wearing uniform number 3.

The last time a Penguins player switched uniform numbers was Chris Conner when he surrendered Number 18 to James Neal on February 22, 2011.  Conner changed to number 16.

The last season that saw multiple players switch numbers was 2008-09.  Goalie Matthieu Garon took his usual number 32 away from Chris Minard. Alex Goligoski gave number 13 to Bill Guerin.  On a side note Paul Bissonette changed that year too, but did not involve a trade.  He started the season in number 67 before changing to 16.

Here’s a look at this season’s capsule/roster.
