82, guys and gals! This is a big number! 82, the number of games in an NHL season! 82, The atomic weight of lead! 82, it’s a happy number folks! 82, it’s the number of sleeps until the 2016-17 NHL season begins!

There’s honestly not a whole lot of interesting trinkets surrounding the number 82. Ummmm, *82 was the number you dialed to unblock your number if you were calling someone who blocked, eh... blocked numbers. 82! It comes after 81!
