John Davidson - 00
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.
The last goalie to wear 00 was Buffalo backup Martin Biron, who was forced to switch in 1998 when the NHL enacted a rule requiring players to wear numbers 1-98 (with Wayne Gretzky's 99 untouchable.)
Fun Fact: 0 has been worn (briefly) by only one player: Hartford Whalers defenseman Neil Sheehy in 1988. When his family emigrated from Ireland, their name was O'Sheehy. Neil figured it was the best way to get the O' back on his back.
