The Habs acquired the services of young Finnish Sami Niku this afternoon. The kid has only been a member of the Montreal organization for a few hours and he's already making news. The Habs announced that the newcomer had already chosen his number.

Niku took the opportunity to choose number 15, which was left vacant by Jesperi Kotkaniemi, now a member of the Carolina Hurricanes.

Some fans were literally praising Jesperi Kotkaniemi when he was playing with the Habs. He was greatly appreciated here. Some fans really didn't digest his departure and they let the Montreal Canadiens know it on Twitter.

Check out some of the reactions from fans:

Remember that KK will wear the number 82 with the Carolina Hurricanes. Obviously, he didn't care as much about his number 15, unlike some fans. Of course, we can all agree on the fact that Kotkaniemi's number won't be retired in Montreal...
