Here we go

Sure, it may be late in the 2008-08 NHL season, but I'm not going to let that keep me from starting another work-in-progress jersey: a Portland (Maine) Pirates practice jersey.

Columbus defenseman Aaron Rome, who played for the American Hockey League club when he was a member of the Anaheim Ducks organization, kicked off the project Tuesday, signing before the Blue Jackets' game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

I should have little trouble finding former Pirates players to help fill it up, too. Besides the Ducks, the Pirates have served as the top farm team for the Washington Capitals and, currently, the Buffalo Sabres.
