According to Holtby in an interview a few years back, it wasn't his choice..haha

 

Q: Is there any significance to you wearing the number 70?
Holtby: No, they just gave it to me at my first camp. I got a surprise call-up my first year, played a few games and people started to buy the jersey. And I felt too bad to change it after I’d seen a couple of people pay money for the jersey, so I stuck with it.

 

Holtby seems like a nice guy!

Nice.  I didn't know the background.  It's just weird to me, seeing goalies with numbers outside the typical goalie numbers.  Often there are cool stories behind it.

Caps did that with Schmidt too. Just gave him a number and he stuck with it.

49 is a pretty neat number. A perfect square, with only 3 divisors, part of a Pythagorean triple of 7-24-25. And quite an easy number to square and to add, subtract or multiply with. Also, from Wikipedia:

Forty-nine is the square of seven.

It appears in the Padovan sequence, preceded by the terms 21, 28, 37 (it is the sum of the first two of these).[1]

Along with the number that immediately derives from it, 77, the only number under 100 not having its home prime known (as of 2016).

Base 10 representation

The sum of the digits of the square of 49 (2401) is the square root of 49.

49 is the first square where the digits are squares. In this case 4 and 9 are squares.

Reciprocal

See also: Repeating decimal

The fraction 1/49 is a repeating decimal with a period of 42:

1/49 = 0.0204081632 6530612244 8979591836 7346938775 51 (42 digits repeat)

There are 42 (note that this number is the period) positive integers that are less than 49 and coprime to 49. Multiplying 020408163265306122448979591836734693877551 by each of these integers results in a cyclic permutation of the original number:

So... To make a long story short;  AKA cut to the chase.... You're implying that Holtby is a square LOL.

Brandi Holtby has the news hammer on why Braden selected the unconventional, yet unique #49 as a member of the Canucks! 

 

 

His family looks excited to be here in Vancouver, and I can't wait to welcome them officially once the team hits the ice!

For those fretting over the Markstrom-Holtby 'downgrade', odds makers have Holtby with a higher shot at the Vezina:

It's pretty clear that Holtby's 'regression' came at the exact same time as Trotz and Korn leaving for the NYI's. Thankfully, Korn and Clarke are arguably two of the top goalie coaches in the world, and we're happen to have one on staff.

nerrrrrrd!

 

I'm kidding, that's actually pretty fun.

Can anyone help out the Holtby's?  Braden is currently stuck at the border due to a tortois export permit issue:

He will always be square to the shooter ;)
