Practicing for hours on end, it was here that a young Gretzky developed the skating, shooting and stickhandling techniques that appeared instinctive to so many over the course of his career. At six years old, an already-impressive Gretzky joined a league filled with players four years his senior. He scored only one goal in his first season, but improved dramatically over the course of his minor league career and finished it off with an incredible goal season. Gretzky continued to impress as a teenager, finishing second in scoring during his only full season in the OHA, then first in the World Junior Championships. Next came the pros.
