    Does anybody know why they switch their numbers for the tournaments? Like Ovechkin wore 32 for Dynamo and 8 for the tournaments, zherdev wore 93 and 13, Kovalchuk 71 and 17.

    Not that I really know, but I would guess that their number was taken on their league team. They were most likely the youngest player on their team, which basically means they get to pick their number from whatever is left over, usually.

    Bingo.

    Ovechkin's first choice has always been 8, Malkin's has always been 17, but both were taken when they joined their respective teams, and as rookies they don't have a say, so usually they just flip them(in Malkin's case) or give a random number.

    Would have been weird if Malkin actually did wear #71, that would have to be the first time in history there would have been a battle on the same team for #71(Konstantin Koltsov currently wears it).

    At the same time there's about 5 Pens prospects that wear #17...

    Most do in honor of a former Russian captain who's name escapes me right now.

    Malkin wears the number because of him.

    I thought Lefebvre wore #24, at least this season. I know he's worn #17 at WBS and #33 for awhile when he was called up to the 'burgh...Better question is when will he pick a number and stay there?

    Who knows. The WBS site said he wore #17 so I went with that. What he wore in Pittsburgh may have just been an asigned number(like Sivek with 47).
