Wine is not a beverage you would associate with hockey, but now that Wayne Gretzky is coaching behind the bench, rather than scoring on the ice, he can allow himself that indulgence. “Janet and I have, for many years, wanted to fulfill a dream of launching a winery that makes world-class wines,” he says.

Wayne Gretzky Foundation Creed; Put Every Kid in the Game.

With Walter Gretzky. The Wine Ladies TV out on location at the Georgian Bay Club for the Ford Wayne Gretzky Classic.

Perhaps the most famous coaching advice in all of hockey came from Walter Gretzky.

He told his son not to focus on where the puck is, but where the puck is going. That’s good advice for life too. The puck is going to our kids. Our future. Hockey is our game. It promotes fitness and personal development. That’s why the Wayne Gretzky Foundation is focused on putting hockey and well being within every kid’s reach. It’s not just about equipping kids for hockey. It’s about equipping kids for life. You’re guaranteed to miss one hundred percent of the shots you don’t take. Every kid deserves a shot. Let’s put every kid in the game.
