R&E by Blaise
No one ever thought that the young Canadian boy who never got off his backyard rink would become a living legend known as “The Great One.” Wayne Douglas Gretzky began his hockey career at age six. He played with ten-year-olds that were bigger, stronger, and had more experience. But Wayne dominated the ice. The domination contunied as he aged as well. By the time he was fourteen, he was playing with twenty-year-olds and he still was the best there, scoring 60 points in 28 games. He was nominated rookie of the year.
Each year, Gretzky would stop the league he was in and move into a bigger and better league, Eventually this would lead into getting selected onto the Indianapolis Racers (WHA team before the WHA/NHL merger). He was now a professional.
He started his NHL career (after merger) as a Edmonton Oiler. He played outstanding. He got 104 points in 72 games! He grew even better as he aged, eventually getting 196 points in 71 games, but he still hadn’t reached his ultimate goal, the Stanley Cup. Read On the ice with… Wayne Gretzky to find out whether he wins hockey’s ultimate prize.
For my R, I made a book cover. The background city (Edmonton) represents the city that supported and cheered him on. The sweater (jersey) he is wearing is the Oilers.
For my E, I researched some of Wayne’s stats.
-most all-star game goals (career) – 13
-most 100 or more point seasons – 15
-most records owned – 60 (official only)
