CSN Mid-Atlantic reported Monday that Stan Galiev has changed his number to 16, ditching the number 49 that he wore since 2010 Development Camp.
Galiev will be the first player to wear number 16 since Eric Fehr (2008-11, 2013-15) left for that other team we will not name.
Mike Marson (1974-79)
Doug Patey (1978-79)
Michel Bergeron (1978-79)
Bengt-Ake Gustafsson (1981-86, 1987-89)
Alan May (1989-94)
Stefan Ustorf (1995-96)
Trevor Linden (2001)
Kris Beech (2000)
Andreas Salomonsson (2002-03)
Brian Sutherby (2003-07)
The number 49 was previously only worn by Caps enforcer Dwayne Zinger.
So yeah, good choice, Stan!
