News: Yakupov will open up training camp on the third line, according to the Edmonton Journal. Impact: Yakupov played mainly on the right wing last season, but will be moved to the left side this year on a line with Mark Arcobello and Teddy Purcell. This is obviously not good for fantasy owners, but is also not written in stone. A productive camp could see Yakupov bumped back up to the second line.(RotoWire, )

News: Yakupov will wear number 10 this coming season instead of 64, the number he broke into the league with, reports the Edmonton Sun. Impact: Shawn Horcoff wore number 10 last season, but said Yakupov could take it this season. Yakupov is looking to change things up and shake off a horrible sophomore campaign (24 points in 63 games and a minus-33 rating). He grew up wearing 10, and hey -- it's not like hockey players are superstitious or anything. His game will improve this season, but it won't be because of the number.(RotoWire, )
