What's in a Number? Hordichuk Takes His

Horton16 Wondering which number Darcy Hordichuk will wear when he rejoins the Panthers on Saturday in Edmonton?

I know you weren't, but I needed to know for our Panthers Preview which runs Sunday.

He'll take Nathan Horton's old No. 16.

Hordichuk wore No. 24 in his first run with the Cats back before the lockout. Bryan McCabe has that now.

Others to sport No. 16?

Len Barrie, Randy Moller, Ray Sheppard, Gilbert Dionne, Craig Ferguson, Craig Fisher, Ryan Johnson, Oleg Kvasha, Ray Sheppard, Ivan Novoseltsev, Mike Sillinger, Kevyn Adams, Matt Cullen and Horton.

Mike Duco had worn that number in training camp, but he's switching to Gregory Campbell's No. 11 (well, he will when he comes back up from Rochester).

Wondering who else wore that number for the Panthers?

Glad you didn't ask: Evgeny Davydov, Bill Lindsay, Kevyn Adams, Bill Lindsay, Mikael Samuelsson and Jon Sim. Andrew Peters, traded to Vancouver today for Hordichuk, wore the double 1s in camp.

Been a long day. Going home and taking tomorrow off. But if anything happens, I'll let you know.
