Here’s A Graphic Showing The Best NHL Players To Ever Wear 00-99

Remember that cool graphic the folks at Mitchell & Ness created showing the best NBA players to ever rock 00-99? The team over at BarDown was so inspired by that project that they decided to create something similar for the NHL.

As you can imagine, the selection process was tough (outside of #99), but the one overarching rule was that each selected player had to spend a significant amount of time wearing the number.
