Olympic Hockey canvas and sports Art Prints



This is a watercolor illustration depicting a highlight of Wayne Gretzky's international career, the 1987 Canada Cup. Gretzky has called the tournament the best hockey he had played in his life. Playing on a line with Pittsburgh Penguins superstar Mario Lemieux, he recorded a tournament-best 21 points in nine games.

Nicknamed "The Great One", Wayne Gretzky is widely considered the greatest hockey player of all-time. At the time of his retirement at the end of the 1998-99 NHL season he was the NHL's all-time scoring leader in Goals, Assists & Points in both the regular season & Stanley Cup Playoffs. He led the NHL in scoring a record 10 times, was Captain of 4 Stanley Cup Championship teams, and was named the league's MVP a record 9 times. He is the only NHL player ever to score 200 Points in a season, and did so 4 times in the span of 5 years. A great ambassador of pro sports, he was also named the NHL's Most Gentlemanly Player 4 times and received the Order of Canada (our highest civilian honor) in 1998. Upon his retirement in 1999, his trademark jersey No. 99 was retired by the NHL.

When NHL players were eligible to play for the first time in the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan, Gretzky became a member of the 1998 Canadian Olympic Hockey team; however, he was passed over as captain in favour of the younger Eric Lindros. Wayne's home town of Brantford, Ontario is just ten minutes drive from our home. As Canadians, we are all proud of his achievements.
