Roose: Red Wings’ Cleary will make one more number change when regular season begins

Via RedWingsFeed, I'd mentioned that Daniel Cleary stated that kids from his hockey school were voting on what number he'd wear this season, and #15 was leading the charge. DetroitRedWings.com's Bill Roose reports that Cleary's charges did indeed decide to have him wear #15 once the regular season begins:

As MLive's Ansar Khan notes, the whole, "Getting #11 back from Alfredsson" thing got complicated...

Cleary is unable to wear No. 11, his number since 2005-06, because it was given to Daniel Alfredsson when it appeared Cleary wouldn't return. Alfredsson said he would give the number back to Cleary, but the NHL would not allow it, due to marketing issues related to the Winter Classic.

And here's the interview if you haven't heard it:

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
