Nine days until the season starts, and so...a look at the greatest hockey number ever, nine.

Nine is the number of the man himself, Gordie Howe. Howe is the only player in NHL history to play in five different decades (1940s, 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s). He finished in the top five in scoring an incredible 20 straight seasons, winning six scoring titles and being named NHL MVP six times. He made the first team all-star roster a dozen times, making the second team nine more times.

Nine is also the number of Howe's archrival, Maurice Richard. Richard is widely considered one of the greatest goal scorers ever, ringing up 50 goals in 50 games in the 1944-45 season with the Canadiens. The Habs superstar won the Stanley Cup eight times, including in each of his last five years as Captain of the Habs. The Canadiens retired his number a month after his retirement.

Finally, nine was the number of "the Golden Jet," Bobby Hull. Hull was a dynamic scorer in his own right, and broke the fifty goal barrier five times. A ten-time first team all-star, Hull's slapshot was clocked at nearly 119 MPH, and he could skate at 30 MPH. Between the NHL and WHA, Hull scored 1808 points.

#9 also hangs in the rafters of the Hartford Civic Center.

The Hartford Whalers signed Gordie Howe and his sons Marty and Mark in 1977.

The King of Hockey retired (again) in 1980 after 214 games with 68 goals, 112 assists and 178 more penalty minutes to his credit.

The Whalers retired #9 that year and though the Carolina Hurricanes did not retire the number, it has never been issued.

On a side note, Bobby Hull also wore Whaler green.

In a final push to make the play-offs in 1980, the Whalers acquired him from the Winnipeg Jets for "future considerations".

In 9 games for the Whalers he had 2 goals and 5 assists (none in the POs). Bobby retired in September 1980.

There's only one thing that comes to mind when I think of the number four and hockey...

orr_1970_640.jpg

...The Man Himself, Number Four, Bobby Orr. Yes, his entire title should be capitalized...you get that when you're the greatest there ever was.

Have to agree with you Obi, #4 = Bobby Orr

.... but for the 'Canes, Aaron Ward, Dennis Seidenberg and the newest #4 for the Canes: (previously #28)
