People argue about a lot of things in Hockey. However, no one can argue with the fact that Wayne Gretzky is one of the best hockey players in history. And after notching so many conquests in the NHL, it looks like he wants to add a few more achievements to his record by becoming the first hockey player to lend his voice to the Simpsons. That isn’t the sort of thing NHL odds by MyBookie.ag analysts will care about.
But it is an achievement that will probably amuse Wayne Gretzky fans, especially those that would like to see him garner even more fame outside the sport. Wayne has enjoyed a varied life in the sport of hockey.
He is the leading Scorer in NHL history, and that isn’t the sort of record you can stumble upon accidentally. Wayne has had to work really hard, playing for teams like St. Louis and Los Angeles in order to garner the powerful reputation he enjoys.
And now, it looks like he will soon be heading to the Simpsons for a short stint. Al Jean has been executive producing the Simpsons since 1989. When he was approached for a comment on the Wayne issue, Jean said that they reached out to him because they were looking for heroes of the winter to join the likes of Santa Clause.
Wayne was the first person they thought of. Wayne is a veteran of his sport. He has been playing hockey for more seasons than most of today’s Hockey stars will ever have the opportunity to successfully play.
Boasting 2,857 points and 894 assists, Wayne Gretzky is without a doubt the greatest Hockey player the NHL has ever seen. And people won’t have to wait that long to see him make an appearance on The Simpsons.

She said that the media tended to "cherry pick" posts from Trump's social media presence to highlight insulting behavior. She finished by promising her husband would "make America great again". "It was a attractive childhood".
According to Jean, Wayne already shot his parts in the summer. Jean said he had a great time working with Wayne, who had all sorts of stories to tell about his time playing Hockey.
He has always been one of Jean’s favorite athletes, Jean having grown up in Michigan. As far as Jean is concerned, Wayne could possibly be the greatest sports star ever, only rivaled by the likes of Magic Johnson from the NBA and the Williams Sisters from tennis.
Wayne isn’t the first athlete to appear on the Simpsons; the show had Gordie Howe make an appearance in Season 3. This was back in 1992. Jean was a Red Wings fans as a child, so no one was bigger than Howe for him at the time. They needed to get permission from his wife, Colleen, to use him in the show.
Jean’s love for the Red Wings continued to grow as he went through his teenage years and finally hit adulthood. For so long as he could remember, his father always had tickets at Joe Louis Arena, even back when they were not a great team.
Because the Simpsons show has a lot of Canadians behind the scenes, Hockey isn’t really anything new around the studio. There is a great love for the sport amongst Jean’s colleagues, and so bringing Wayne Gretzky on board and using his voice for the show was obviously appreciated.
