When you think of the number 92 as a number for a professional athlete to sport, an NHL goaltender is not the first, second, or even twelfth position to probably come to your head. Well it has been confirmed that Tomas Vokoun, who was recently traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins, will indeed be wearing number 92.
The reasoning behind this is quite simple.
Vokoun usually rocks the number 29 between the pipes, and because that number is already occupied by starting netminder Marc-Andre Fluery, Vokoun decided to reverse the digits and appear to be a defensive lineman in the net.
Only one other player has rocked the number 92 for the Pittsburgh Penguins, and that man was Rick Tocchet in the year 1992 (oh, the irony).
So in honor of Vokoun, let's take a look at some of the other men who donned the strangest numbers in NHL history.
