Players in the "wrong" uniforms


Recommended Posts

When did he wear this jersey...and why???
Sidney Crosby in a Kings Uni

My best guess is something predraft? I think in the NFL, they invite would be draftees to train with the team, but I'm not sure if they do that in the NHL. If they do, then that is my guess.

You didn't hear?

Crosby to LA for Dan Cloutier's phone number! :D

But yea, that is old. I think it may have been pre-lockout as teams can bring anyone to them to run practices and such. Sometimes you'll random Major Junior players participating in a practice with an NHL team even if they don't end up drafting them for whatever reason, mostly draft position.

When Crosby was a junior, he would head down to LA and get offseason training from some fitness guys there. He wasn't the only prospect doing that, Jack Johnson (of LA coincidently enough) was his best mate, and they would go down together. The Kings offered these guys spots at their prospect/rookie camps to fill out the roster, and since they were in LA, they went along.

Joe Girardi with the Colorado Rockies

Joe Girardi = LEGEND!!! Also, he played for the Rockies for three seasons, he wasn't exactly there for a cup of coffee. Girardi with the Cardinals would be a lot better. Someone find one!!!

Edit: Nevermind, I found one:

I think he kind of resembles Joe Sakic there.

A little bit off topic :P

Deion Sanders as a Redskin (even weirder because it's Sean Taylor's number)

Ravens (still looks weird):

Speaking of Sean Taylor, here he is with number 36:

Jim Brown with an LA Raiders shirt on (though he never played for them...):

Ernie Davis with the Browns (only played a season, his rookie season, before his sad death.)

(EDIT: Never played a regular season game as a professional.)
