Nylander wore 92 when he played for the Buffalo Sabres, but this is an old Reebok sweater. Nylander's dad, Michael, played for the Blackhawks from 1999-2003 and also wore 92. So in this case, the new Blackhawks winger apparently had some Blackhawks gear already on hand.

Michael Nylander scored 63 goals and had 117 assists in 239 games with the Blackhawks.
