Get ready to see the number 55 everywhere you go Winnipeg. Today at the MTS Iceplex, Mark Scheifele was skating with a 55 stuck on to the back of his helmet. He originally would have liked number 19, but it is already being worn by Jim Slater. Scheifele has the potential to have the highest jersey sales in town. I think 55, 16 (Andrew Ladd), 9 (Evander Kane) and 33 (Dustin Byfuglien) are all going to be contenders for the top spot. Derek Meech also announced he will be wearing number 7 and Kenndal McArdle is going to be 23.
