When the Columbus Blue Jackets traded for Jeff Carter at the end of last season, many fans spent the offseason and the beginning of this season buying his No. 7 Blue Jackets jersey.
So you could imagine there was some anger when Carter was traded to the Los Angeles Kings on Feb. 23, after just playing 39 games with the Blue Jackets.
Well, tonight, for what is believed to be the first time in sports history, a team offering fans free nameplates to replace a traded player for a newly acquired one. It actually works out perfectly because Carter was traded to the Kings for Jack Johnson, who came to wear No. 7 for the Blue Jackets.
