‎ A player’s number may contain up to four characters.

Last week I covered a bunch of uniform rules. This week I will be covering the rest of the rules that pertain to skater numbers.

Today's rule is very straightforward. A legal skater number is four character long max. It may be less than four, but not more. Wednesday's rule will explain that extra characters may be allowed on a jersey that would make the number look larger than four characters but a skater's number, what is communicated to her and used on all official tracking sheets, may be no more than four characters.
