Wayne Gretzky, known as "The Great One," is a hockey legend whose impact on the sport transcends statistics. Born on January 26, 1961, in Brantford, Ontario, Gretzky's talent was evident from a young age. He quickly rose through the ranks, dominating junior hockey before joining the Edmonton Oilers in the NHL at just 17 years old.

Gretzky's career is marked by numerous records and achievements that may never be surpassed. He holds the record for most career goals, assists, and points in NHL history, among many others. His vision, hockey IQ, and playmaking abilities were unparalleled, earning him the reputation as the greatest hockey player of all time.

Beyond his individual accolades, Gretzky's impact on the game's popularity in non-traditional markets like California and Arizona cannot be overstated. His trade from the Oilers to the Los Angeles Kings in 1988 helped expand the NHL's reach and solidified his status as a global icon.
