What number were you
Growing up and why?

I was number 98 because no one dared be number 99 due to respect for Gretzky.
I was always just 1 away from Gretzky.
I use 98 for every sport I play now.

Also I have yet to see anyone in the NHL wear number 98. I tend to stay away from the usual numbers. 4,9,19...etc

I heard Brian Lawton wore 98.

I wear 34.

Superpest 05-10-2010 05:47 PM

I wore either 17, 7 or 77 because when I was assigned number 17, I scored 20 goals that season in soccer. So ive worn either of those three numbers for the rest of my soccer career :P

If I ever was in the NHL I would probably wear 77 or 17

Always been my number in sports. Was the first number I got when playing Little League (assigned at random) and just rolled with it ever since.

headsigh 05-10-2010 05:49 PM

It was 56 for a while, I guess.

fly4apuckguy 05-10-2010 05:50 PM

I wore #4 when I first started playing because I liked Bobby Orr.

Later on, I was #11 for several years, but I also had #10, #5 and #8 at various times.

I was never too worried about what number I wore, to be honest.

Que Sera Sera 05-10-2010 05:52 PM

I wore #12 for a while, then #2. This past season I wore #6 and I am deciding whether to go with #37, #20, or #50 this season.

Kevin Forbes 05-10-2010 05:52 PM

17 or 3

I had 3 most of the time when I was younger. I think it got randomly assigned to me when I was a kid and then I liked it to keep asking for it as I got older.

17 is my birthday (June 17th), I had that for high school and college.

1Knee1T 05-10-2010 05:55 PM

17, 9, and recently, 67.

17 and 9 are from my birthday (September 17th) and 67 was the number Cherepanov used in Rangers prospect camp.

hoonking 05-10-2010 05:56 PM

14, its my birth month + day added together.

Steelhead16 05-10-2010 05:57 PM

00, 2, 4 (twice), 5, 9, 11, 16 (a lot), 20 (twice), 25, 88

Salzig 05-10-2010 06:02 PM

I wear #50 for no special reason.

Ani simov mal 05-10-2010 06:04 PM

Always wore #26. Nice number.

Scottyk9 05-10-2010 06:04 PM

Baseball and Basketball was always 15.

JustinW 05-10-2010 06:10 PM

FrozenKing18 05-10-2010 06:28 PM

No hockey where i am currently living in.
(ITS BS!!!!!!!!!!! I want to play hockey so bad!!!!!!)

So if i ever play hockey id wear 18 because its my date of birth.

alexanderovechkin8 05-10-2010 06:36 PM

3 is the number i like but i have only got it once or twice

Ozz 05-10-2010 06:43 PM

My pre-peewee years we didn't get to choose, but after that I was #10 for 8 years as an homage to Bure (except during practice, when I was #96 as I wore my Bure jersey during them...haha)

blueberrydanish 05-10-2010 06:55 PM

#56 for my zubov love

Hrad 05-10-2010 07:00 PM

Only had #2-16 available when I was younger, I'd usually roll with 10.

These days I'm 57, for Perron.

Sony Eriksson* 05-10-2010 07:15 PM

I grew up using #44 since i like John McIntyre when he played for the Kings. I switched to #71 for no reason at all and then years later Malkin decides to copy me.

Mithrandir 05-10-2010 07:19 PM

24. I wore 94 in high school when it was taken, and I've worn 42 before.

Pog Form 05-10-2010 07:29 PM

11, 7, 45, 12, 39

AIREAYE 05-10-2010 07:51 PM

12 : my number 1 choice, homage to Eric Staal (same first name, fav player :P ), girlfriend's number for volleyball

7 : always had a vibe for 7, lucky 7 i guess, there was no 12 during my first year, so I picked 7

WhipNash27 05-10-2010 07:52 PM

Didn't get to play when I was growing up, but I've been 18, 9, 26, and various other numbers. When I get to choose I take 27.
