JERSEY: Patrick Sharp, No. 10 (2005-present)
I love the throwback jerseys so I just decided to get one. Why Sharp? No particular reason. I'm a Sharpie fan, but why I got that one in Sharp, no reason.
And why did you wear it tonight?
He's injured, so we're thinking of him. We're hoping for a speedy recovery. That's why I threw Sharpie on. Had Toews on for a while, but thought I'd switch it up and go Sharpie.
And any other jerseys on the horizon?
[Marian] Hossa. I need Hossa. Probably a red, 100 percent stitch, all authentic.
