The Pats will officially retire the jersey and number of former Pats star, Jordan Eberle, in a pre-game ceremony at the Brandt Centre, December 5th.

I tend to avoid the NHL rumor mill but its tough not getting a little interested in the thought of Eberle wearing a Canucks uniform but thats probably more wishful thinking on my part.
