    Sweden, Austrialia, Canada (Ontario, Alberta, NS, BC), and 7 different states. Several have played east coast hockey. Two from below the Mason Dixon. And still ten from Michigan.
    Go Huskies!

      The jersey guy finds it very interesting that Tyrone Bronte is listed as slated to wear #55. If that is correct, he would only be the third player to wear a number higher than 35 in 101 seasons of Michigan Tech Hockey.

        That would also be the highest number ever for a Huskies player.

          Yep, Nolan and Redmond both wore #37.
          I would be disappointed to see Tech lose the tradition of only numbers 1-35 on the ice, but maybe one century of that tradition is enough?

            To this point in history the highest number worn by a skater (non-goalie) is 34, worn by Riley Sweeney for part of his career. The only other Huskies player to wear #34 was goalie Jason Moilanen.

              I don't think I've posted this before, was holding onto it for what should have been the 100th season. After a lot of research, this is my list of the best Huskies players to wear each number in history. You'll see the career accomplishments of each, along with the others considered for the honor. There were some very tough calls, especially #8, #15, #30, and #31.

              The most recent to crack the list is Matt Roy, the furthest back is Hank Akervall.

                Good work JJ!. I think you ought to be paid for all this. After all, they hire 5 people for less work than you do already.

                  This is a great list. It brings back some great memories. Thank you. I don’t have the stats, so I have to trust you, but Lou Angotti missing... (And I recognize the inherent difficulty of comparing the greatest players, of different generations)
                  Go Huskies!

                    Lou Angotti was probably the toughest call at #15. In the end I probably was influenced too much by seeing Rick Boehm play, but a 200 point scorer would have been equally hard to leave off the list. Maybe that would have been better served as a tie.

                    The other tie would then be #31, where Bruce Horsch (the all-time leader in wins) had the bad luck of sharing the jersey number with Jamie Ram.

                      Didn’t coach MacInnes consider Garry Bauman the better goalie? Each had a championship....

                        Awesome work! Certainly some tough decisions on there so I like the "Others Considered" aspect of the list. All that great history with so many talented players... and all Tyrone Bronte has to do is play a game to make the list.

                          It's a labor of love. But, if the staff is reading this... I'm willing to work for Huskies game worn jerseys.

                          I do wish that Tech still put out a yearbook for the hockey team. They post fragments online similar to what used to be sections of the yearbook, but since the print era ended, there really hasn't been a single public facing document for all the historical team data (like an all-time numerical roster). It seems that they only keep about 15-20 years worth of info archived on the website depending on the type of content. A lot of other teams still do a digital yearbook each season. The 100th season would have been a great year to at least do it one-time. Likely could have some some hard copies on campus as well.

                            Lou Angotti played in 2 NCAA Championship games ('60 & '62) and was MVP in both and played 10(?) seasons in the NHL. Did Rick Boehm play in the NHL?

                              Boehm didn’t make it to the NHL.
