The Curse of Jersey #20 Strikes Again

The Montreal Canadiens are an organization rich in history with 18 banners hanging high up in the rafters of the Bell Centre representing the greatest players which have ever adorned the Bleu-Blanc-Rouge, and within those banners are 16 jersey numbers that will forever remain unused again to signify their iconic status within the organization.

Number 20 is not one of those numbers, but perhaps it should just for the general well-being of the players who are unknowingly thrust upon its curse. Since 2006, 10 players have worn that number, and none have lasted more than one year.
