The Great One: For The Record

Center Wayne Gretzky, voted the greatest hockey player of all-time in a poll conducted by The Hockey News, retired after the 1998-99 season with four Stanley Cups, ten scoring titles and nine Hart Trophies (MVP). He finished his career with 894 goals, 1,963 assists and 2,857 points—all likely untouchable records.
