Wayne Gretzky was never drafted. He had a WHA contract with the Indianapolis Racers. In 1979 when the WHA merged with the NHL the NHL team associated was allowed to keep 2 players from their WHA team. Gretzky was obviously a choice for Edmonton and was therefore never drafted into the NHL.
The Washington Capitals play in Washington DC. There is no NHL team that plays in the state of Washington.
They are a farm team for the Chicago Blackhawks.
20 seasons 1979-1999
Gretzky played for the Edmonton Oilers for 10 seasons, longer than he played for any other team. He was with the LA Kings for only 8 seasons.
Because of the ongoing financial problems in Phoenix, Wayne Gretzky is no longer coach of that team and is no longer coaching in the NHL .
