Best Answer

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.
