The Edmonton Oilers honored another member of their dynasty years Tuesday, retiring the No. 7 jersey of Hall of Fame defenseman Paul Coffey.
Paul Coffey will have his No. 7 retired by the Oilers on Tuesday night.
A trio of defensemen with nine combined Stanley Cup championships and diverse playing styles were inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame on Monday.
The end of Paul Coffey's playing career belies the true greatness his Hall of Fame induction reflects.
Ray Bourque needed 22 seasons to win a Stanley Cup. His wait to get into the Hockey Hall of Fame was much shorter. Bourque, Paul Coffey and Larry Murphy -- all high-scoring defensemen -- were elected in their first year of eligibility.
