Hockey, like most sports, is a game of numbers--team stats, player stats, standings and, of course, the sweater numbers. To hockey fans, numbers such as 4, 29 or 99 all speak for themselves. The numbers--like the players who wore them--have become icons. But what happens when two or more great players have worn the same number? Who was the best? Is Gordie Howe the quintessential number 9, or does the honour belong to Maurice Richard, Bobby Hull? And what about number 29? Ken Dryden or Felix Potvin? In Hockey Night in Canada: By the Numbers , veteran hockey analyst and sportswriter Scott Morrison surveys the field and offers his own recommendations. Featuring statistics, facts, contributions from other Hockey Night in Canada personalities, and full-colour photography throughout, this book is sure to spark a lively debate.
