The three best things that can happen to you in the NHL are winning the Stanley Cup, getting into the Hall of Fame and getting your jersey retired.

Here is a list by team of all the players who have ever had their number retired by an NHL team.

One important thing to note is that the league officially retired Wayne Gretzky’s number 99 for the whole league at the 2000 NHL all-star game. However, only two teams actually have the number up in the rafters: Edmonton and Los Angeles. In the list below Gretzky has only been listed under those two teams.
