The Great One—From father to son
As a child, Wayne Gretzky practiced for hours on end, spending every available moment skating, shooting and practicing his stick-handling. When he was six years old, his father built him a skating rink in the backyard.
But Walter Gretzky gave his son much more than an ice rink. He inspired a passion—an unstoppable longing to put blade to ice that transcended technical practice because it was infused with love, support and a sense of play.
That sense of play would produce hockey’s greatest player of all time and the most statistically dominant player in North American team sports history. The Great One is a legend that could not have been realized without the eager passion of a young boy—and the loving support of a devoted hockey dad
