The Great 8 In Toronto?

from Kevin McGran of the Toronto Star,

When he suits up Friday for the first time as the Toronto Maple Leafs, Jake Muzzin will wear No. 8.

He used to wear No. 6 for the Kings, a number long retired in Toronto (Ace Bailey) and now one of 13 Leaf numbers out of circulation.

Muzzin will be the 52nd player to wear No. 8 for Toronto (though some, like Bailey and Tie Domi just wore it passing through to other numbers).

But Muzzin has a chance to be the greatest player to wear No. 8 in Leaf history. This is not to put pressure on him. It is to say that as far as numbers go, eight has a pretty low bar.

Low bar? No, no, he was right the first time - Muzzin will certainly become one of the greatest players to wear #8, or any number for that matter, for the Leafs, or any team for that matter….
