Then it gets a little tricky. Is it Bill Hicke or Ralph Backstrom beside Beliveau? And around the corner, you can see number 20 above the stall, which was Phil Goyette’s number at the time, and it looks very much like Goyette lacing his skates, although it’s difficult to be sure. Beside him, the player is out of the picture but the sweater hanging up, number 15, belonged to Bobby Rousseau if the year is 1961-62 0r 1962-63. However, if it’s from the ’60-’61 season, number 15 was worn by Jean-Guy Gendron and Rousseau wore number 24.
