All-Time Number Debate: 4 Philippe Boucher

So many Sabres have come and gone in the organization over the past 39 years.  But who was the best wearing their number.  This is going to settle that debate.  Using the Buffalo Sabres Alumni listing of all-time uniform numbers we will post a player a day based on their number.  After a certain uniform number is up, we put the vote to you.


Boucher played for the Buffalo Sabres from 1992-94.  During that time, he played a total of 71 games where he scored 6 goals and 23 points.  He was drafted by the Sabres in the first round of the 1991 Draft, 13th overall.  He was part of a trade with the Los Angeles Kings that sent Alexei Zhitnik, Robb Stauber, and Charlie Huddy to the Sabres.

Boucher still plays in the NHL with the Pittsburgh Penguins.  He has played a total of 16 seasons in the NHL with 94 goals and 300 points.  In those 16 seasons, there have been four different teams, Buffalo, Los Angeles, Dallas and Pittsburgh.
