Datsyuk Changes Number

Detroit Red Wings Forward Pavel Datsyuk has opted to change his number for at least training camp and the pre season.

Know for his number 13 Datsuk is now being seen around training camp up in Traverse City wearing the number 24 in honor of friend and former teammate Ruslan Salei. Salei wore number 24 this past season with the Red Wings and was wearing it when his KHL team plane crashed earlier this month.

    @SurferKen Thank you for sharing that. I was a fan of Ruslan’s in his short stint here; and as the season came to an end and could sense he wasn’t going to return grew saddened yet hopeful in our prospects at the same time. The Lokomotiv crash was rough and has touched many of the players, coaches, staff, writers, fan… in the NHL. Going to be interesting to see how this season plays out – if it has a “Believe” feel to it.

    I had chatted with Ruslan several times while our kids played hockey together here in So Cal. He told me the person he was closest to was Dats.
