When you fill out the numbers starting from 1 for so long it’s no surprise 25+ won’t have many players over history.

Is this something that was done at some point?

I believe Ranta was the first player to go outside of 1-29 in a long time.

I get that the Gophers have stuck to traditional 1-35 hockey numbers (30-35 for goalies). But I hadn’t heard of the team filling out the roster starting at 1 and moving up. I always thought 2-29 were a free for all.

Gotcha. That is my interpretation also.


Saying “fill” wasn’t the right term, but I meant they weren’t allowed to go 30+, and 26-29 are pretty crappy hockey numbers. We need a 91, the best hockey number.
