I have always been fascinated with the process of selecting jersey numbers. When Team Canada comes together for best-on-best International Hockey Tournaments, there is no doubt that some players will have to change numbers.
Detailing the numbers worn by each player in the NHL and at the international event.
-19 was the most commonly worn number, with eight Team Canada members wearing it in the NHL (Yzerman, Sakic, Doan, Richards, Spezza, Thornton, Toews, Bouwmeester)
-12 was worn by four different playres while in the NHL (Gagne, Iginla, Staal, Marleau)
-4 and 44 were the most common numbers for defensemen (4: Stevens, Blake, Lecavalier, Bouwmeester) (44: Regehr, Bertuzzi, Pronger, Vlasic)
-Chris Pronger played for Canada four different times from 98-2014 and wore three different numbers (24, 44, 20), the most of any player
