No one will ever wear number 18 with the Barrie Colts again.

That number, which was worn by Cambridge native Bryan Little, will be retired by the Ontario Hockey League team later this month.

The Colts will retire his jersey prior to their home game against Hamilton on Jan. 25.

Little, who was a first-round draft pick, 12th overall, of the Atlanta Thrashers (now Winnipeg Jets) in 2006, played four seasons in Barrie from 2003 to 2007.

The 32-year-old is in his ninth season with the Jets and has racked up 521 points in over 800 games.

During his time as a Colt, Little was named OHL rookie of the year, became the team's all-time leading scorer and was eventually named captain.

Little was an extremely consistent player with the Colts, collecting 153 goals and 189 assists for 342 points in just 247 regular-season games. He also added 22 goals and 48 points in 38 OHL playoff games. 

He also won gold as a member of Team Canada at the 2007 World Junior Championship.
