Michael Cammalleri now has a souvenir of his days with the Montreal Canadiens.
The 29-year-old winger got his old No. 13 in the mail, courtesy of Canadiens president Geoff Molson.
"Just received a hand written letter from Geoff Molson and my jersey from last game as a hab," Cammalleri wrote Friday on his Twitter account. "Much appreciated thank you. Merci."
When he was traded to Calgary on Jan. 12, Cammalleri asked then-general manager Pierre Gauthier if he could keep his jersey. He reportedly was told he would have to pay for it, although Cammalleri wouldn't confirm that.
A website that sells game-worn Canadiens jerseys was asking $1,250 for Cammalleri's No. 13 before he was traded and $600 afterward.
