Desharnais takes #51

MONTREAL – 51 is the new 58.

After sporting No.58 for his first 54 games with the Canadiens, David Desharnais has decided to make a change. When Bell Centre PA announcer Michel Lacroix announces the speedy center next season, he’ll now be starting with “Number 51…”

“I wore No.15 as a kid until I started playing pro,” explained Desharnais, who recently signed a two-year deal with the Canadiens. “That was taken so I went with No.51. I’m pretty happy to have a number that really feels like mine.”

How would Desharnais going from 58 to 51 mean that?

I liked 58 quite a bit, but not like it really matters.

Well, unless Desharnais has an inordinate amount of respect for Jeff Halpern we don't have a #15 anymore.

Well, Halpern wore 15 last year, but he's gone, so either Budaj or Cole would likely have taken the number.

This is not news related to Gorges. Lock it!

Good for the kid. Though why didn't he take it last season?

Probably didn't get the go ahead to select his own number until this summer. I believe 58 was assigned to him.

what makes you say that?

He wore 26 even when traded to EDM, I'm guessing Cole might go with 36.

See my post above.

Reading the full article on the website, I'm now wondering if Desharnais was talking about when he originally chose 51 or this time around.

I wouldn't mind, I just hope he just crazy about those numbers to the point where Cole would wear 62, that would be such an ugly number.
