Are you allowed to wear Jersey numbers over 40-50? Just because RNH wore 9 for the Rebels, and 93 with the Oilers. But in Bantam he wore 93. But in Everett Mueller and Nikolishin wore 88 and 89, and portland Pouliot wears 51. Only few I noticed that had numbers over 40, which was Portland and Everett, otherwise no teams really go higher than 40. But in the OHL and QMJHL they do. And I know New Jersey is the only NHL team where you cannot choose a number above 40, unless you played 500+ games wearing the number like Jagr, Gilmour, Trotter, Howatt, Mogilny and Richer. Edit: Thought it was Pouliot who wore 55, but it wasn't.
