One Bruins number that is neither retired nor likely worn any longer is #6. It's considered bad luck after #1 pick Gord Kluzak wore it and succumbed to chronic knee problems. When Joe Thornton started his career wearing #6, a writer or two in Boston started grumbling that he should get rid of it. Joe eventually switched to #19, after Steve Yzerman, I believe.
For what it's worth, in my own Boston-area hockey league, I wear #77.
