Default Niedermayer's jersey to be retired

There have been some rumblings on and off over the last year about it, but it's official now.

Quote:
Scott Niedermayer may have played the final five seasons of his NHL career in Anaheim, but to the general manager Lou Lamoriello the Norris Trophy-winning defenseman will always be a Devil.

“I don’t think there’s any question in my mind that he’s a Devil,” Lamoriello said.

That will be made official on Dec. 16 when the Devils retire Niedermayer’s No. 27 jersey in a ceremony prior to the team’s game against the Dallas Stars at Prudential Center.

Lamoriello said it was “an organizational decision” to make Niedermayer the third player in team history to have his number retired – joining Scott Stevens’ No. 4 and Ken Daneyko’s No. 3 in the Prudential Center rafters.

“What he brought while he was here and the significant role he played in the Cup success warranted it,” Lamoriello said. “You have to have all day to talk about all the things that he’s done. But he’s deserving of having it retired.”

He definitely deserves it. I know some Devils fans are still bitter over how he left, but I got over that a long time ago. What he helped the team accomplish is more than worthy of having his jersey retired.

Stevens and Daneyko have both had their jerseys retired already.
