No word if he asked Ben Chiarot (2016-19), Keaton Ellerby (2014-15) or Derek Meech (2012-13) but the Jets announced that defenceman Dmitry Kulikov has switched his number from 5 to number 7 for the 2019-20 season. He wore 7 when playing in Russia, 7 when he played for the Panthers (his first NHL team) and 77 for his one season in Buffalo.  With Chiarot off in Montreal Kulikov will assume his preferred number.
