No. His interest was always in hockey. But he learned to skate young, and was much better than other children his age.
Yeah he plays soccer
He brought the players payday in line with what the other major sports were receiving.
Jersey #99 was retired league wide when Wayne Gretzky retired, therefore no one else has had that number since he wore it. However, there were other players who wore that number before him, and probably other players on other teams that wore the #99 at the same time that he wore it for his team.
It is hard to pick just one player who is the best hockey player in history because that is an opinion. But Wayne Gretzky is probably the most well know/greatest holding the most records in the NHL of any player. Other top players were Bobby Orr, Mario Lemieux, Gordie Howe and goalie Terry Sawchuck.
Both Mark Messier and Wayne Gretzky have more points than Gordie Howe.
Some people say that it's Wayne Gretzky because his jersey was re tiered from the league (99) and because he was the best back in the day And other people say it's Lord Stanley Fore more information then google Wayne Gretzky or google Lord Stanley
These also happen to be the best hockey players ever. I would say that in order, Bobby Orr, Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux, Gordie Howe, and Maurice Richard. There's not too many other players that will be considered by anyone as the best player ever (or best candian player).
Yes, amazingly by other jealous parents. Unbelievable.
Wayne Gretzky and a few other Canadian Stars
Quite simply he saved hockey in the USA. If he hadn't gone to LA, that franchise would have died as well as other teams that were on the verge of collapsing He brought excitement back to New York as well.
As of the 2007-08 season, that would be Wayne Gretzky who scored 92 goals in the 1981-82 season.
