Penguins’ Tanner Glass pays for fans to switch jersey numbers

Once in a while a player will switch jersey numbers. This is usually done to accommodate new arrivals to the team. One such instance is Penguins left-winger Tanner Glass, who wore the number 10 until Pittsburgh acquired Brenden Morrow. Morrow was number 10 on the Dallas Stars, so Glass decided he would switch to number 15 to open up the jersey number so Morrow could wear it. 

Nice gesture, right? Well, what about all those fans who went out and bought Tanner’s jersey with 10 on the back and sleeves? 

Glass sent this tweet out to his fans:

You can say what you want about the Pittsburgh Penguins, but this is a class move all the way. Most people wouldn’t even take into consideration what a jersey switch means to their fans who went out and bought their previous jersey. I hope more players do things like this when jersey swaps happen.
