Genting Club The St. Louis Blues were none too happy about Vladimir Sobotka’s decision to bolt for the KHL on Thursday. They responded by re-signing Steve Ott, who wasn’t very good for them, but hey, they needed somebody.

It’s the number his older sister, Mandi, wore for the Yale University women’s team before she lost her two-and-a-half year battle with acute myeloid leukemia. On Friday, Jaden let his fans know that his no. 9 jersey would become a thing of the past:

It’s yet another way Mandi’s legacy is being honored.
