Archie Henderson holds the distinction of being the first non-goaltender to wear a number higher than 29 for the Capitals. The biggest player in team history (6-foot-6, 220 pounds) at the time, Henderson was issued a goaltender’s jersey (No. 31) when he reported for his first NHL duty in December, 1980. It was the only jersey available that would fit the big winger.
