Why #00? Oh Baby!

jd00SI.com takes a look at the stories behind players’ numbers including this on why John Davidson choose to change his number from 30 to 00 and then back to 30…

“A potential statement for a goalie who lays goose eggs on the scoreboard and score sheet. In 1977, the Ranger netminder switched from 30 to 00 for a season in which he went 14-13-4 with one measly shutout. Returning to 30 for ’78-79, his performance noticeably improved as he helped lead New York to the Stanley Cup Final.”

…i was only one years old when JD made the switch to 00, so if anyone has any insight into why he did that please leave in the comments section. Either way, definitely a smart move to go back to 30.

SI adds that Marty Biron also wore #00 but was forced to switch in 1998 when the NHL enacted a rule requiring players to wear numbers 1-98.
