Cleary back as No. 11; Alfredsson may switch to No. 24

TRAVERSE CITY — It also appears that Cleary will get his No. 11 back, which Alfredsson was assigned when he began skating informally with teammates.

“Alfie doesn’t care,” Cleary said. “He said if I signed he would have no problem with me having 11, so we’re going to try to figure it out. I’m more concerned with the front of the jersey opposed to the back.”

Alfredsson said he’ll probably wear No. 24.

“I really didn’t have it I guess,” Alfredsson said of No. 11. “I’ve looked at some numbers. There are quite a few that aren’t available anymore. I wore 24 in Sweden when I joined the Elite league there from ‘92-‘95, so that’s probably the number I’ll go with.”
