Note the number he is wearing in the pic as well.

Bring this kid up for a month as a 7th dman and reap the jersey sales...

Of course, if we did this, the Eye would not sell the jersey because they hate making money

I love czech defenseman!

Tomas and Frank, Zidlicky, Polak, Hejda...

Let's hope he's next Zidlicky :).

Jordan will never match the offensive output of Zidlicky. He plays a completely different game than him.

Michal Jordan, Michael Jordan's less gifted, hockey-playing, unrelated non-acquaintance.

That is just awesome.

I wouldn't be sure that Jordan couldn't potentially be an offensive force in the NHL. His goal scoring ability from the back end is also pretty impressive. His defense, however, has been considered downright horrible at times.

This is certainly a move for grooming him into a role in the coming years. I would imagine that he may even see some ECHL time next season if he doesn't start out hot.

Is he going to wear 23 in Charlotte... I'd make him if I were the Checkers... Sell some 23 Jordan jerseys

ChuckW 05-20-2010 05:20 AM

Awwright...Michal Jordan!

Let's hope he doesn't decide to play baseball instead of reporting for hockey... :laugh:

I'm planning to get a Checkers jersey by the end of the year, that one would be a popular choice for sure.

I agree that the potential is there, but from what I seen of Plymouth this year, whether it be live or on TV, it looks like he took a step back this year. His confidence with the puck took a dive, his first pass seemed sloppy and forced at times, and he often panicked when quarterbacking the play. That's not even to start on his defensive game. Hopefully, he can rebound this upcoming season, and simplify his game. At times it looked like he was flustered from trying to do too much. But, a prospect isn't defined by one season, so I guess we'll wait and see.

A 3rd sport for Jordan? Come on man, stick to being a retired basketball player!

There will be lots of fun with his name.

If Charlotte does this right, they could set some records.

Player number suggestions:

Jordan 23
Staal 12
Lawson 5 (Ty, right?)
Harrison 88 (football's Marvin?)
Morneau 33 (baseball's Justin)
Murphy 3 (baseball's Dale?) or 55 (hockey's Larry?)
Terry 26 (Chelsea's John)
Ryan 34 (Nolan?)
Rodney (he could go by B-Rod and wear No. 13? no?)
Dodge F150
Krueger (drawing a blank here, somebody help me with a "Nightmare on Elm Street" reference - would have been so much better if Freddy Krueger was in Friday the 13th - maybe "5" for the number of "Elm Street" movies? weak.)
Gotta be something for Kennedy, maybe '63?
