The Arizona Coyotes to retire Shane Doan's number

The Arizona Coyotes to retire Shane Doan's number
02 Aug
Not in Hall of Fame

As most of the regular visitors to are aware we are (very) slowly putting together our top 50 players of every franchise in the “Big 4” of North American sports. After that is completed we will take a look at how each organization honors their past players and executives.

As such, it is important to us that the Arizona Coyotes have announced that they will be retiring the number 19 of Shane Doan, which will make it the first time in team history where this has occurred. This will take place on February 24 during their home game against the Winnipeg Jets.

Drafted 7th overall by the original Winnipeg Jets, Doan played his first hockey game in 1995 and his final one in 2017 for the Arizona Coyotes. He would play all 1,540 of his games in the National Hockey League for the same franchise and is without question the greatest player the team ever had since they relocated to Arizona.

Doan would represent the Coyotes in two All Star Games and he scored 972 Points while holding virtually every scoring record for the organization.

While Doan’s number is the first to be retired the team has “honored numbers” from the team’s history, which include Bobby Hull, Dale Hawerchuk, Thomas Steen, Keith Tkachuk, Jeremy Roenick and Teppo Numminen.

We here at would like to congratulate Shane Doan for earning this prestigious honor.
