that wasn't his number. That was because it was the 2012 draft. Every player the Sharks picked that was there got a #12 jersey. They (and a lot of other teams) do the same thing every year. Go check out previous drafts.

Of course, if it's what he really wants, the Sharks will permit him to wear both #19 and #12. That way he can show up on the scoresheet twice when he provides two assists on the same goal.
