We won't know whether Colin will get to wear 37 on his Brandon Jr. Bulls jersey until next week, when the team has its first official practice of the season and we complete all of the paperwork.
If 37 is available, that'll be his number, an homage to Boston's Patrice Bergeron. But if it isn't, we've kicked around a couple of options:
~ 73, for the obvious reason;
~ 18, in a nod to Tampa Bay's Adam Hall, who makes his NHL living the hard way;
~ 9, for Florida's Stephen Weiss, another of Colin's NHL buddies; and
~ 19, for Ottawa's Jason Spezza, another NHL player who has made an impression on Colin.
So, what do you think? Will any of these work? As always, suggestions are welcome.
