Sorry Sidney Crosby, you’ve got a long way to go to catch the greatest hockey player that ever lived.

A man who only played until he was 38-years-old and still holds the NHL record for career points, a record that may never be broken.

Wayne Gretzky hasn’t played pro hockey in over a decade, but can still make news by simply suggesting that he’d be interested in suiting up for an outdoor alumni game.
