On the ninth day of Christmas the Coyotes gave to me …number nine gets unretired

Bobby Hull wore #9 famously for the Winnipeg Jets and the Chicago Blackhawks.

However, his son infamously wore the number as a Coyote.

The Jets had retired the number nine in honor of Bobby’s contributions to the team, ergo the Coyotes had it retired as well as it is technically the same franchise.

When Brett Hull signed with the Coyotes in 2005, they unretired the number so Brett could wear it on the ice.
