Wayne Gretzky to play in Winter Classic Alumni Game

NHL's all-time leading scorer among former Blues to compete against Blackhawks at Busch Stadium on Dec. 31 @NHLdotcom

Wayne Gretzky is among more than 20 former St. Louis Blues on the roster for the 2017 NHL Winter Classic Alumni Game against a team of former Chicago Blackhawks at Busch Stadium on Dec. 31.

Gretzky, 55, played for the Edmonton Oilers in an alumni game against the Winnipeg Jets on Oct. 22, one day before the 2016 Tim Hortons NHL Heritage Classic, but indicated he might hang up his skates.

"That might have been my last game," he said.

Hockey Hall of Famers Brett Hull, Bernie Federko, Al MacInnis, Adam Oates, Chris Pronger and Peter Stastny are also on the Blues roster, as is Martin Brodeur, the winningest goaltender in NHL history.

Additions or changes to the roster may be made leading up to the game. The Blackhawks' alumni roster will be announced in the coming days.
