Best Answer

It is quite rare that you will see forwards wearing numbers 1-8 or defenseman who wear numbers 9-28.

Goalies traditionally wear the number 1 or numbers in the 30's, but there are exceptions, as it is not a written rule.

In minor hockey and junior hockey teams players are restricted to only a few jersey numbers, usually 1-31.

Most defensemen are restricted to numbers 2-8, while the forwards can choose from number 9-29.

The numbers 1, 30, and 31 are usually reserved for goaltenders.

It's not related to their positions as it is in football. Players can wear any number from 1-98 nowadays.
