I believe only one Wayne Gretzky. No, more than 1 person has worn #99, Gretzky is merely the most famous. Wilf Paiement, for example, also wore that number. So the best answer I can give right now is: at least 2 (but not many). The #99 was retired league-wide after Gretsky retired. So no other player has had the #99 AFTER Wayne Gretsky. I have no idea how many wore it BEFORE him. It is also entirely possible and probable that other players on other teams wore the #99 at the same time that he was wearing it for the team he was on. At least, five players :

- Gretzky - Joe Lamb - Des Roche - Leo Bourgault - Wilf paiement

The number 86 is the only number left in the NHL between 00-99 that has never been used. Edit: The answer above is wrong. Every single number between 00-99 has been worn. The last number that wasn't worn was 84, which Guillaume Latendresse wore with the Canadiens. Mikael Grabovski wears it with the Maple Leafs currently. There have been 3 players who have worn the number 86: Jonathan Ferland for the Canadiens in 2006, Jeremy Williams for the Rangers in 2011 and Wojtek Wolski for the Phoenix Coyotes and New York Rangers currently.
