Even though he plays there, Devils right wing Mike Jefferson needs a new jersey. He legally changed his name to Mike Danton over the summer. Everyone is acting like this is normal. It seems kind of odd to me, though. Danton, who was suspended for all of last season, won’t talk about the name change, except to say that it was to distance himself from his family name.
Other weird things about Danton/Jefferson:
- * He tried out for the part of young Austin Powers in GOLDMEMBER
* He got the name Danton from the first name of a boy he met at a hockey camp
* You can’t buy him anything monogrammed
