Best Answer

The Canadian five dollar bill has kids playing a pick up game of hockey on a frozen pond, on the back of the bill. The only kid wearing a numbered sweater has number 9 on his back, which was the number of "Mister Hockey" Gordie Howe, who was Wayne Gretzky's idol, when Wayne was a kid.

Hockey is "The Canadian Sport" and we pay tribute to our most famous player on our money.
