Photo: Nicklas Backstrom’s New #69 Dynamo Moscow Jersey

Before their game against Vityaz Chekhov, Dynamo Moscow’s official Twitter posted a photo of Nicklas Backstrom‘s new #69 jersey lying neatly by his locker. Backstrom’s old #99, which he apparently never wanted to wear out of respect or something, is now kaput. Nicky is still the Swedish Gretzky in my book.
