Athletes in every team sport have a number on their jersey to identify them.In the NHL, players are given numbers between 1 and 98. Anything less than 1 (0, fractions, decimals) are not permitted and anything over two digits is not permitted.

Additionally, 99 was retired by the league to honor "The Great One."

Sometimes, players get to choose their own number and other times, they're just assigned a number by the team.

Some players though, choose a number that's cute or a deep and meaningful number.

Here are 25 jersey numbers with some thought put into them.
