I remember hearing a story about an AHL goalie who liked to wear 00 so that whenever he got scored on and turned around to sweep the puck out of the net, it'd be like he was saying "Oh oh..."

Latendresse always seems to give us something to talk about....
So it means that # 69 was used !!!!

#69 was worn by glorified goon Mel Angelstad.

It's a weird number at first, but it's growing on me. I like numbers that make sense together (8 and 4) better than ones that look weird together (73? )
No love for prime numbers?

Bruins legend Eddie Shore, a defenseman, at the peak of his powers, wore #1.

The reasoning was simple, he was the best defenseman in the league, so as the #1 blueliner, he wore #1.

He only wore it for a season.

Former first overall draft pick Brian Lawton is the only player in league history to wear #98.

Lawton became the first American to be draft first overall when the Minnesota North Stars opened the 1983 Draft by calling his name.

Then North Stars GM Lou Nanne, with his franchise in free-fall just two years removed from a trip to the Stanley Cup final needed Lawton to be a big star for Minnesota to save his job. He quickly annointed him the "American Gretzky" to get the local press buzzing about his new acquistion. Of course this put a ton of pressure on Lawton but Nanne was oblivious.

He then took the next stop of assigning him jersey #98, just one less then Gretzky. Needless to say, Lawton never panned out and soon dumped jersey #98 and settled for just number eight.

Even funnier is the fact that they passed on Steve Yzerman and Pat Lafontaine who were pretty high 1st round picks themselves.

The NHL rulebook thinks otherwise;

Quote:
Section 2, Rule 13 :
Each player and each goalkeeper listed in the lineup of each Team shall wear an individual identifying number at least ten inches (10") high on the back of his sweater. Sweater numbers such as 00, 1/2 (fractions), .05 (decimals), 101 (three digit) are not permitted.

I wish more teams would have pages like this:

http://pensvision.com/history/uniform.php
http://oilfans.com/playerNumbers.php

I'm still not buying the fact that the number 84 has never been worn. I shall continue my research...
