If Michael Jordan is to basketball, Wayne Gretzky is to ice hockey. Ask anyone in the hockey world, and only one name comes to mind when asked who the greatest hockey player of all time is, and that is “The Great One.” In a career that spanned almost 20 years, Gretzky is the record holder for most of hockey’s career statistics, both in the regular season (40 records) and in the playoffs (16). He is also a four-time Stanley Cup winner and recipient of nine Hart Trophies, the MVP of the NHL.
