Here is something that ESPN had in its newest Uni Watch

And here's a spectacularly esoteric tidbit, courtesy of Society for International Hockey Research member R. J. Pratt: "Guillaume Latendresse of the Canadiens is wearing No. 84. Big deal? Well, it's the first time in NHL history that it's happened during the regular season. (I'm sure it had been worn in exhibitions before by minors-bound players.) It was also the last number that had never been worn in NHL history. Everything else -- including 0 and 00 -- had been worn before. Jonathan Ferland of the Canadiens wore No. 86 last year, leaving only 84 as yet to be worn. Latendresse can now claim to be the greatest No. 84 in NHL history."

Who would have thought that in all the years of hockey, nobody in the NHL had ever worn #84 in a regular season game.

I read that a day or two ago myself. Interesting. Latendresse looks good so far. Maybe he'll make 84 a popular number one day?

My numbers are pretty common in the NHL (39, 93). It's kind of a shame. I'd like to feel like I had a unique preference. :P
