Valabik will wear #48

The Thrashers did not take a morning skate this morning, but game notes were available. Boris Valabik, who is scheduled to make his NHL debut tonight against the Hurricanes, is listed as #48, the number he has worn in training camp the past couple years.

Don Waddell has said in the past he is against players wearing high numbers (a traditionalist on this question), but the exception seems to be training camp numbers. Often rookies will move to a new number later. So while this will help you pick Valabik out tonight -- as if at 6'7 that were a problem -- don't run out and get your jersey custom-made just yet.
