#59 because it was the reverse of #95...I started to play in 1995, so I just went with that because I liked higher numbers. I couldn't wear #95 though, for some reason, so I just reversed it and it stuck.

Occasionally wore #9 also when coaches decided that wearing a high number apparently means you think you're better than the 'team'...such a stupid, idiotic notion...I never wore a 'normal' goalie number, which I was fairly proud of for some reason. Still, to this day, I smile any time I see a goalie wearing a non-#1 or 30-39 number.
