Last week, during the Rangers loss to the Maple Leafs, it was reported that Wayne Gretzky WOULD NOT play for the Rangers in the Winter Classic Alumni game on December 31.
Gretzky said he was going to spend that time with his family.
Maybe he has already agreed to play but they are keeping it a secret for a little while. I just don’t get why he wouldn’t play. He gets to play with a bunch of old teammates, put on the Rangers jersey again, and try to beat the Flyers. Sounds like a winning proposition to me.
