Wayne Gretzky will be lending his voice to an upcoming episode of The Simpsons.
The hockey legend will become the first hockey player to voice a Simpsons character when he appears in an episode set to air next month!
In an interview with NHL.com, Al Jean explained that the show was looking for “heroes of winter” for the December 11th episode “and there couldn’t be a bigger hockey hero than Wayne Gretzky.”
“People argue about a lot of things, but they never argue about who’s the greatest hockey player. It’s always him,” Al said about Wayne.
Wayne Gretzky is known as “The Great One” in the hockey world, he’s won four Stanley Cups with the Edmonton Oilers before moving on to play for Los Angeles, St. Louis and the New York Rangers.
