Gretzky: NHL taking right approach to head shots @NHL

TORONTO (AP) - Wayne Gretzky says the NHL has done a good job of tackling the head-shot issue.

"I like how the NHL approaches things now," Gretzky told The Canadian Press on Thursday.

"They always put together committees or groups and they try to analyze it and figure out the best way that they're going to keep the game exciting and yet try to protect the players. They try to do the best they can to stay on top of things like that. "That's all you can ask for."

Gretzky says people don't always know the right answers, "but at least you can try to find them and that's what they're trying to do."
