Feb 6--17 Players

Nothing for any of the 17 players for todays birthdate. So, it'll be just a liitle bit of this, a little bit of that.

1966 - Stan Mikita played with a helmet for the first time in his NHL career, and scored two goals and an assist as Chicago beat Toronto 3-2.
1990 - Brett Hull becomes 1st son of NHL 50 goal scorer (Bobby) to score 50

2000 - Wayne Gretzky's sweater #99 was officially retired permanently by the NHL, in a pre-game ceremony before the 2000 All-Star Game in Toronto.

Heres a program from the early days (1993) of the NHL Oldtimers (Alumni) tour.

Middle insert of cards of some of the players and referees.

In some form or another, I have autos of 12 of the 18 pictured players.
