Steady Teddy? Number change for Peckham this year… #24

By , July 25, 2011 10:39 am

NHL_Oilers just tweeted that Theo Peckham will be switching from #49 to #24 this year. Odd. But whatever floats your boat, Teddy. Edit: this is his old Owen Sound Attack number, so looks like the 49 was just his team assigned one and temporary (perhaps while Staios was here).

    Teddy changes his number from 49 to 24. This was his old # from Juniors. Either the Oilers assigned him #49 while he was a rookie, or he took that temporarily while Staios was floating around. Anyways, he’s made the big time, so he’ll keep his old #24 now.

    Well, considering his Twitter account is PECKS24, I’m not really shocked by this…

    And let’s face it – 49 is a number they give to guys before they know they’re gonna stick around. Just reeked of “assigned” versus “chosen”….

    hah, I didn’t even really draw the connection there with his twitter name. But yah, 49 isn’t really much of a player chosen jersey #. I hope G&S didn’t rush out and buy his jersey yet.. lol

    Odd. I actually liked him with the number 49 but it ain’t a big deal. Now we just gotta get Sutton to wear #7, Put him on the same pairing with pecks and we can have the 24/7 pairing. As in keep your head up………….24/7!!!!!

    Good thing I choose to wait for the new vintage whites to come out to get Theo’s jersey!

    Edit. Ugh, I still always think as Coffey as #77

    On that note, just a friendly reminder that we have an NHL shop that is set up here in which we can grovel while you graciously throw us a bone by supporting the site. They have the white jersey up there. :P But I am not sure if it’s cheaper in store or anything.

    Cue Steve-O who will make some post about the new Amazon feature which he intends to finance the site with his massive amounts of monthly Amazon purchases.
