BOSTON -- While growing up and playing junior hockey, Tyler Seguin wore No. 9. That number is unavailable to the newest Boston Bruins player because it hangs from the rafters at the TD Garden with Johnny Bucyk's name on it.
Bucyk, the former Bruins captain, legend and Hall of Famer, joked a few years ago that he would allow a player to wear his retired No. 9 as long as that player gave him his signing bonus.
