Columbus player wearing #2 in training camp?

1

Hey guys, I'm a Caps fan and I read Japers Rink all the time, which is what led me here to ask this question. I've got a CBJ helmet with #2 on it from training camp - the only problem is I don't know what training camp and I'm curious if any player wore it. It's a Reebok helmet with an Oakley straight cut visor, if that helps - I know it's a longshot but I figured you guys might have pics from training camp this year. Thanks!

Partner to the Usage Charts, Greg Sinclair also has shot charts in one place. That is, NHL-provided data on shot distance and location graphed in one place (and averaged, too). You can pick team shots, team shots with a particular player on ice, or shots for a player. It's pretty cool and has kept me preoccupied all evening.

Remember those player usage charts (bubble graph charts) from last year? Those were the graphical representations of player zone starts, corsi values, and quality of competition and they were pretty cool. Well thanks to the work of Greg Sinclair, you can have usage charts all the time! Check out the link and nerd out while playing with the conditions and hovering over each player's circle to see detailed info.

Sports Club Stats is one of my favorite math-nerd websites. Each day, Ken Roberts' system simulates the rest of the season based on past results, and predicts the likelihood of a team making the playoffs. This site is flat-out awesome!

Chance Will Be a Powerful Contributor to the Playoff Bound

From the folks over at Fear the Fin, a look at how variance and luck will contribute to this shortened season. It's an involved and worthwhile read, but one of the takeaways for Jackets fans is that, "...teams will be unable to separate out by talent" over 48 games. Consider: John Davidson might be able to work and rebuild behind the scenes while puck luck helps this year's squad on ice. That kind of combo would be ideal.

Ryan Murray Has Successful Shoulder Surgery

The Blue Jackets announced today that defenseman and 2012 first round draft pick Ryan Murray had successful surgery to repair his injured shoulder, which he first injured on November 16th while playing for the Everett Silvertips. The recovery time is six months, and Murray is expected to make a full recovery. This would put him on schedule to be ready for training camp in the fall.
