Number 21 will never be worn again for the Colorado Avalanche. 21 was raised to the rafters in honor of Peter Forsberg recently. Although I've picked another NHL great as the best to ever wear the number 21, Forsberg certainly deserves consideration and the honor he recently received.
His 1.25 points per game puts him 10th all-time in that category. The '94-'95 Calder Trophy winner sits 4th all-time on the list of assists-per-game with .90.
He won two Stanley Cup Championships with the Avalanche and was named league MVP in 2002-03.
Did you know........Forsberg was drafted by the Flyers and traded (with others) for Eric Lindros?
