The best current NHL player by jersey number 1-98



           I know, you've probably seen a lot of these around the internet. But I looked around, and a lot of the articles I found with the same idea were missing numbers for no reason. Since 99 is forever retired by Wayne Gretzky, as no one stepped on the ice this season wearing numbers 69, 80 and 84. this should be a 95 section list, and is. Also, if this hits big, say 200 pageviews, I'll do one for the MLB at the end of the season. Finally, a lot of credit goes to Hockey-reference.com, where I found pretty much all of this info. So, let it begin. The top player to suit up in 2017-18 per jersey number, NHL.
