THE GREAT ONE

When he was 6, Gretzky's father built an ice rink in his Brantford, Ontario backyard, where he honed his skating, shooting, and stickhandling.

Fun Fact: Wayne was never drafted. He was not old enough to be drafted in the NHL, so he went to play in the WHL. Once the WHL collapsed, NHL teams were allowed to choose 2 players from their WHL affiliate teams. The Edmonton Oilers chose Wayne Gretzky first.
