In French, chess is called échecs.The folks in Tampa must have liked the sound of the name Desjardins, so they picked up another piece. There are 16 pawns in a chess set, so they have a ways to go. Of the 16, 8 are white and 8 are black (perhaps representing home and road uniforms in hockey). The remaining 16 are called major pieces, and Desjardins clearly isn't one of them.
