Bert Likes Espo

from Flames Insider at the Calgary Herald,

Wonder why Todd Bertuzzi wound up with No. 7 with the Flames when he’s always worn either 4 or 44 as an NHLer (and before that as an OHL star)? Roger Millions of Sportsnet asked Bertuzzi that very question today at the Flames’ charity golf tournament luncheon and this was the response:

“Obviously, I’ve always worn 4. I think it was just time for a change. Me and a couple of buddies were having a beer and trying to figure out what to do (about his sweater number) and one of the players that came up who I’ve always idolized is Phil Esposito. So I thought I’d go with it and see where that goes.”
