I didnt get my 1st choice (21) this year, so i got 4, now i play everywhere my team needs me. I've played C, LW, RW, D and Goalie this year. If i was going to play for a WHL/AHL/NHL team i'd probably wear 23. just because my birthdate minus the year is 02/23.
#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.
“The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile, but that it is indifferent. If we can come to terms with this indifference and accept the challenges of life within the boundaries of death, our existence as a species can have genuine meaning and fulfillment. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light.” - Stanley Kubrick
Makes little to no sense but when I played I had number 8 all 6 years I played. Oddly enough it was for Kobe Bryant who I still have a man crush on. I know its sad but it is what it is. The only time I didnt have 8 was for roller which I had 14 and Im not sure why.
My number is usually 93, but in minor they go from 1-19,30 sometimes, or I'd take 39 otherwise. But I go with 19 because lots of hockey greats wore that number, and that number I MUST have, I chose 93 cause I'm born that year, and I was born in 1993 so I take the 19 and there I somewhat have it.
21! Everything in my life either had one of those two numbers in them so why not combine them. And because of #21 Mike Eruzione, captain of the USA miracle on ice team, just reminds me on the ice that anything can happen!
