Unlucky digits

The last two players to wear No. 27 for the Bruins have been bought out. Glen Murray first wore No. 44, switched to No. 21, and closed out his Boston career with No. 27 before he was bought out on July 26, 2008.

Peter Schaefer, bought out today, wore No. 72 in 2007-08, his first year in Boston. After Murray was bought out, Schaefer switched to No. 27, his former number in Ottawa, during training camp. Schaefer was assigned to Providence before camp broke on the 2008-09 season.
