GRETZKY TO PLAY LESSER ROLE
Wayne Gretzky won’t be playing a leading role for Team Canada at the Vancouver 2010 Olympics.
In an interview Monday, Gretzky told Sportsnet that when Hockey Canada president Bob Nicholson puts together a management team, he won’t be the one calling the shots.
“Bob is going to make the hard decisions . . . somehow I am going to be involved in a smaller way and smaller role,” Gretzky said.
