What’s old is new again. Fanny packs, overalls, Converse, and for Nazem Kadri, his old jersey number.

The newest Colorado Avalanche forward posted a sneak peak of his new threads with the caption “Vintage”, a testament to his glory days playing for the London Knights of the OHL.

Kadri wore No. 43 with the Toronto Maple Leafs for 10 straight seasons, but he decided it was time to switch things up for the second team in his NHL career.

The number 91 has only ever been worn once by a Toronto Maple Leaf player, John Tavares. As Kadri alluded to in a recent Instagram post, he’s planning on “cleaning out” the other 91 on the faceoff dots this upcoming season.

They will get two chances to duel it out, first on Nov. 23 in Colorado, and then Kadri’s much-anticipated Toronto homecoming on Dec. 4.

Kadri is claiming No. 91 from teammate Vladislav Kamenev, who is currently an RFA pending a new contract. A classy gesture from the youngster, who has played 28 games in the NHL so far.

The Avalanche shared a preview of what’s to come in October with this photoshopped image of Kadri rocking the iconic Avalanche colours.
