We are counting from 99 to 0 to determine who’s the best Buffalo athlete to wear each number. It’s Buffalo Sports By The Numbers here on Buffalo Sports Page.
We’ll have a new number and athlete every day this summer. Each story also includes reaction from the Buffalo Sports Page staff, and a way to catch up on numbers you’ve missed.
Roger Crozier, Sabres. We usually associate this number with goalies, and Crozier was the first one the Sabres ever had after acquiring him from Detroit. Injuries cut short his career, but his acrobatics were entertaining while they lasted. Others: Don Edwards, Sabres; Jim May, Stallions; Jhonas Enroth, Sabres; Bobby Olive, Destroyers, Stephanie Reid, UB.
