SJHN Daily: Smith Will Wear No. 2, What About Celebrini?



Credit: San Jose Sharks

Will Smith wants to wear No. 2, Will Smith is going to wear N0. 2.

After signing with the San Jose Sharks, the Boston College star noted yesterday that No. 2 was his jersey number of choice, for two big reasons. First, because it’s a non-traditional number for a forward, and second, his dad’s affinity for Eagles legend Brian Leetch.

Hours after that declaration, the Sharks made Smith No. 2 jerseys available online.

Next question? What is certain 2024 Draft No. 1 pick Macklin Celebrini going to wear for the San Jose Sharks?

He wore No. 71  at Boston University, but that might be because sophomore Quinn Hutson had prior claim on his usual No. 17.

It looks like Celebrini wore No. 17 for the Chicago Steel, Shattuck-St. Mary’s, and the Jr. Sharks.

But of course, Thomas Bordeleau wears that number for the Sharks right now.
