In the early years of Wayne Gretzky’s career in Edmonton, he was a single guy who happened to have a relationship with lounge singer Vicky Moss. It lasted for a couple of years and later on, as we all know, Wayne met Janet Jones, married and lived happily ever after. But for a while, we thought we would be seeing Vicky Gretzky instead. (As a sidenote,Vicky’s brother Joey, who was born with Down Syndrome, was the Oilers dressing room guy, still is, who would do odd jobs for the players. He was loved by the players and became part of the Oilers’ inner circle, which is quite heartwarming.)
This Is Wayne and Vicky in 1981 on The Tommy Banks Show. When you watch Wayne from this time, you see he was still very much a kid when he didn’t have his skates on. http://archives.cbc.ca/sports/hockey/clips/6214/
The Tommy Banks Show was a Canadian TV talk show which ran from 1968 to 1974, and from 1980 to 83. Tommy Banks was many things, an actor, pianist, conductor, arranger, composer, producer, and politician. I’ve no idea if he could skate though.
