Halischuk gets a number change
Forward Matt Halischuk has been given a new number. After wearing No. 63 throughout training camp, tonight's game notes have him listed as No. 16.

Drafted 117th overall by the Devils in 2007, Halischuk, 21, has one goal in three appearances this preseason.

Bobby Holik wore 16 last season; Dainius Zubrus, two seasons ago. Past Devils to have worn it include Laurie Boschman, Sylvain Turgeon, Pat Verbeek and Merlin Malinowski.
