Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Brent Gretzky
Centre Brent Gretzky had the unenviable task of following in the footsteps of his legendary older brother. He was also only 160lbs. which made him more appropriate as a minor league playmaker.

The Brantford native was chosen 49th overall by the Tampa Bay Lightning in 1992 after registering 250 points over three seasons for the OHL's Belleville Bulls. In 1992-93 he notched 20 goals in his rookie pro season for the Atlanta Knights of the IHL. Over the next two years, Gretzky played briefly in the NHL but had difficulty shedding the tight checking throughout the league. He continued to toil in Atlanta and helped the franchise win the Turner Cup in 1994.

The crafty pivot signed as a free agent with the Toronto Maple Leafs prior to the 1995-96 season. He never returned to the NHL but was a popular addition to the St. John's Maple Leafs of the AHL.
