Throughout his illustrious career, Wayne Gretzky has done all kinds of plays for his teammates or himself that has crowned him The Great One. He's also scored many goals in his career as he still holds the most goals ever in the NHL.

However, during an interview in the second intermission of the Canucks and Ducks game, Gretzky reveals a type of goal he had never attempted while in the NHL which is between his legs.

His professionalism and sheer competitiveness always stood in front of him as he always wanted to find the best way he can score a goal rather been trying to look fancy. This revelation brought the panel to a good laugh as the best player in hockey history continues to show some humility towards himself.

It's incredible to think that Gretzky played 1487 games, scoring 894 goals, with 1963 assist for a total of 2857 points and was a + 520. Currently Alexander Ovechkin is trying to challenge his scoring record as he is 848 goals and is 38 years old.

Ovechkin will need a great season next year to be able to pass his record as he only has 47 goals remaining.
