Let's take a skate down memory lane and into the Los Angeles Times' archives in honor of Friday being the 25th anniversary of the Kings' acquisition of Wayne Gretzky, a trade that changed the fortunes of the Kings and the NHL. The Times' Lisa Dillman wrote a fine story that quoted the principal players on their thoughts about the deal, with the benefit of a quarter-century's hindsight. There really was no way to anticipate the effect Gretzky's arrival would have on the NHL - think Sunbelt expansion - and also on youth hockey in Southern California , which is now regularly sending players to major college hockey programs, the Canadian junior ranks and to the NHL. Rumors that Gretzky might be traded by the Edmonton Oilers had circulated for weeks before the deal, though both sides denied that a trade was imminent less than a week before it was done, as cited here.

"The baby is very healthy," said Wise, who added that both of her parents were also doing fine and that Gretzky, known as the Great One, was present at the birth.
