Scott Niedermayer’s Sweater Going Up In The Jersey Rafters

from Tom Gulitti of Fire & Ice,

Al Dhalla of Super Agent Inc., a Toronto-based sports marketing company, posted Saturday on his Twitter account that Friday, Dec. 16 will be “Scott Niedermayer Night in New Jersey.” The Devils host the Dallas Stars that night.

Reached on the phone this evening, Niedermayer acknowledged that he has had a working relationship with Dhalla (Dhalla also advertised on Twitter the availability of autographed Niedermayer memorabilia), but was uncomfortable talking about his jersey number being retired and said, to his knowledge, nothing had been finalized.

“It’s sort of a strange thing to talk about,” Niedermayer said. “If it does happen – and I guess maybe it will – it’s a great honor. But I don’t really find it my place to talk about it. It’s their decision ultimately. They’re in charge. They’re calling the shots, not me, and that’s the way it should be.”
