A team’s history can be told in many ways, one being sweater numbers players wore. The Nashville Predators are gaining quite a collection.

Sports are steeped in history. Fans who follow teams for years can recall spectacular moments including even the smallest of details. It could be from championship winning moments to the unlikeliest of comebacks. Just twenty years into their existence, the story of the Nashville Predators is filled with such moments.

Few things in a team’s history bring memories like the numbers on the players’ backs. The number 23 will forever be associated with Michael Jordan. Well, unless you are a die-hard Chicago Cubs fan, then you think Ryne Sandberg. The number 42? Jackie Robinson. Eighteen? Peyton Manning.

Wayne Gretzky will forever be associated with 99. Bobby Orr is #4. FanSided’s Dave Stevenson states P.K. Subban is the greatest player to wear the number 76. It is interesting to see how many current players may be the best to sport their numbers.

With the Predators being one of the youngest teams in the NHL, it is interesting to see 72 numbers have been worn on the ice. Fourteen of those have only been on the back of one player each. Ten sweaters were given to 8 or more players. The most worn? That would be the number 14, which has been used 11 times. Mattias Ekholm is one of those players, but also put on 42.
