Wayne Gretzky enters the hockey broadcast world.
On Wednesday, the NHL's top scorer signed a multi-year studio analyst contract with US-based Turner Sports. He will appear at key points in the regular season, including Opening Week and Winter Classic, and then during the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
For roughly a third of the shortened NHL season, Toronto Maple Leafs star Auston Matthews captured the imaginations of hockey fans everywhere while making the league's newly formed Northern Division goalkeepers headbang.
This is no longer a new discovery because Precision Shooting Center has been a goal scoring machine ever since he entered the National Hockey League in 2016 and won the Calder Trophy as best rookie with 40 goals.
Matthews, 23, has followed his newcomer to the league, scoring 34, 37 and 47 goals in each of the past three years, and he was on track to secure his first-ever 50-goal campaign last season ahead of the championship.
