Max Domi has had the picture of Wayne Gretzky hanging in his room since he was a kid and now he's seen the story behind it.
The Arizona forward watched the footage of Gretzky signing the photo for the first time during a visit to NHL Studios on Wednesday.
His dad Tie Domi, who spent 16 seasons in the NHL with the Winnipeg Jets, Toronto Maple Leafs and New York Rangers, got the autograph with a little help from former Rangers forward Adam Graves. Graves put the request in after the last game of Gretzky's career on April 14, 1999. Tie was a forward for the Maple Leafs at the time and Max was 4 years old.
Gretzky was all too happy to sign for "Tie's little guy," and now that Max is all grown up, he's got a new appreciation for an already cool gift.
