Yeah he did. Its a pretty good number IMO. Unique.

I remember my sophomore yeah of high school hockey I had made the team as the backup goalie and the number I desperately wanted was #29 as I was a big Dryden fan, and had wore that number my entire life. Unfortunately for me, that number was already taken by the starting goalie. Instead, I was given #34. I really grew attached to that number over the season. So, the next season rolls around and I was promoted to the starting goalie position as the previous guy graduated and moved on, leaving the #29 open for the taking. Well, without even thinking twice about it I chose the #34 once again, and have worn that number ever since.

I assume many players are similar, or just don't care about numbers. Galchenyuk has had two solid seasons with the #27, so if he's a superstitious guy, I wouldn't be surprised if he stuck with it for at least a while longer. Hopefully he does, considering I just bought his jersey!!
