When I was nine years old I lost a game of rock-paper-scissors against my friend to determine who could wear #17 (Jari Kurri was a big fan favorite in Northern Alberta those days). The next closest number available was #15 and I ended up having a good season so I stuck with it.

It sort of sucked as a number growing up though because until Heatley and Getzlaf came along there were few star players in the NHL wearing #15 that one could identify the number with (not many Dave Gagner, Bobby Smith, or John MacLean fans around my parts).
