Question: I know you were kind of given 48, but are you going to keep it? Is it just your thing now?

Seems that way, yeah. I'm a pretty easygoing guy. Like, once I got it, I wasn't really in a rush to change it or anything. I've kinda nudged (Danny Brière) about it, I don't think he cares. He's someone I can really look up to, and he's helped me a lot, Danny B.

I'm gonna ride with it for now. I don't know, we'll see. Maybe down the road, I'll change it. I like it for now. It's grown on me.

Even when I first came here — I think my first development camp — I was wearing 68. I know Jagr wasn't on the same level as Danny B here, but it's still Jagr. They haven't given me the easiest numbers to wear. But I like 48 now, I think it's kinda grown on me. And all my family back home has 48 jerseys, so I'd feel bad if I switch it now.
