Early life, family and education

Friends, love life and relationships
According to many of Wayne’s fans, Emma is still too young to be dating, and isn’t currently seeing anyone, but there are rumors claiming that she might be dating her high school sweetheart. It is believed that the two started dating around one year ago, and that the boy has been introduced to her father as Emma doesn’t want to date someone if her father doesn’t give them the thumbs up – she hasn’t commented on these rumors, so as of August 2020, Emma is single, she hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.

Who is Wayne Gretzky?
Wayne Douglas Gretzky was born in Brantford, Ontario, Canada, on 26 January 1961 – his zodiac sign is Aquarius and he holds Canadian nationality. He played in the National Hockey League (NHL) for 20 years, only changing teams three times.
Wayne was raised alongside his sister Kim and brothers Brent, Glen and Keith, in Brantford by their father Walter Gretzky who was a hockey player, and their mother Phyllis Leone who was a housewife – Wayne’s parents married in 1960.
Wayne skated for the first time before he turned three, and taught by his father. at the age of six, he started playing for a team comprising children nearly twice his age. By the time he turned 10, he was playing for the Brantford Nadrofsky Steelers, and scored 378 goals and counted 139 assists. His family moved to Toronto when he was 14 to help him work on his career as a hockey player, and he went on to compete in the Metro Junior B Hockey League in 1975 and 1976.
He signed with the Indianapolis Racers in 1978 competing in the World Hockey Association (WHA), but by the end of the year the team went bankrupt, and Wayne was sold to the Edmonton Oilers where he stayed until 1988.
While playing for the Oilers in 1985, a new rule was introduced known as ‘the Gretzky rule’ which stated that if two coincidental penalties were called, neither team would lose a player, however, the rule was reversed in 1992. In 1988, Wayne was traded to the Los Angeles Kings where he stayed until 1996, and he then played a season for the St. Louis Blues. After that, he signed a contract with the New York Rangers staying with them until 1999, officially retiring on 18 April 1999 after the Rangers lost to the Pittsburgh Penguins. Wayne later stated: ‘My last game in New York was my greatest day in hockey… Everything you enjoy about the sport of hockey as a kid, driving to practice with mom and dad , driving to the game with mom and dad, looking in the stands and seeing your mom and dad and your friends, that all came together in that last game in New York.’
Wayne is also a bit of an actor, as he appeared in the American soap opera “The Young and the Restless” in 1981 while he also appeared in a Russian movie about the life of the former Russian goaltender Vladislav Tretiak. He was a guest in the talk show “Saturday Night Live” in 1989, and also made a cameo appearance in a single episode of the animated comedy series “The Simpsons”.
As a writer, Wayne published his first book – “Gretzky: An Autobiography” – in 1990, followed by his second book “99: My Life in Pictures” in 1999. His latest book “99: Stories of the Game” came out in 2016, becoming a best-seller.
