Who is 'Wayne' in hockey?

When people refer to "Wayne" in connection with hockey, they are invariably talking about "Wayne Gretzky" aka "The Great One". Gretzky holds just about every scoring record in the NHL which he earned playing for the Edmonton Oilers (there is a statue of him in front of the arena in Edmonton), LA Kings and NY Rangers. He now owns the Phoenix Coyotes and also managed Team Canada to a gold medal (the first in 50 years) in the 2002 Winter Olympics. He also has a small stint with the St Louis Blues. His scoring records will likely never be touched. While players today struggle to get 50 goals and 100 points in a season. The "great-one" would have that many in a half a season. Wayne Gretzky! How could you not know that !?
