Looks like No. 71 for Cleary; Alfredsson will keep No. 11

TRAVERSE CITY – Daniel Cleary doesn’t look like he’ll be getting back his No. 11 from Daniel Alfredsson after all.

Due to what it’ll cost to make the switch in numbers with the league, Cleary has decided to wear No. 71 for this season.

Cleary confirmed after practice that he indeed would not be wearing No. 11.

Cleary will be the third Wing to wear 71, joining Wendel Clark (1998-99) and Jiri Slegr (01-12), both of whom were trade deadline acquisitions and were not retained after the season.
