Did Charlie Huddy Purposely Retire With The Numbers He Had, To Honor Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux, Steve Yzerman, Jari Kurri, and Petr Klima?

 

Charlie Huddy played 17 seasons in the NHL, and he won all five of his Stanley Cup Championships with the Edmonton Oilers between 1984 and 1990. He made it to the Stanley Cup Final with Wayne Gretzky, Jar Kurri and the Los Angeles Kings in 1993, but lost to the Montreal Canadiens. He also played for the Buffalo Sabres and the St. Louis Blues. Charlie Huddy retired in 1997 with 1017 regular season games played, 99 regular season goals, 19 playoff goals, 66 playoff assists, and 85 playoff points. Conspiracy?

17 = Jari Kurri - Won 5 Stanley Cup Championships with Charlie Huddy and the Edmonton Oilers.
19 = Steve Yzerman - A Wayne Gretzky competitor.
66 = Mario Lemieux - A Wayne Gretzky competitor.
85 = Petr Klima - Won the Stanley Cup with Charlie Huddy and the Edmonton Oilers in 1990, and known as the NHL player who wore the #85 best.
99 = Wayne Gretzky - The greatest player ever. Won 4 Stanley Cup Championships with Charlie Huddy and the Edmonton Oilers.

Actually, # 19 is also Bryan Trottier of the New York Islanders. That makes more sense than Steve Yzerman. The Islanders won their 4th Stanley Cup against the Edmonton Oilers in 1983, and then the Edmonton Oilers won their first Stanley Cup against the Islanders in 1984.
