Wayne Gretzky and real estate developer Steve Ellman closed their much-delayed purchase of the Phoenix Coyotes Thursday, ending a saga that took some harrowing turns when Ellman had difficulty assembling the money. The franchise cost was $90 million but with closing costs, legal fees and debt assumption, the price tag reads $125 million. Ellman said just under $70 million is equity and $60 million is debt assumption.

Wayne Gretzky, who retired last year planning to spend two years away from hockey, is considering becoming part owner of the Phoenix Coyotes along with prospective lead investor Steve Ellman. "It's definitely the right offer. It's just a question if it's the right time," Gretzky told The Arizona Republic.

Hockey great Maurice "Rocket" Richard is feared to have abdominal cancer that he first fought off more than a year ago. Richard, 76, was in the hospital Monday, the same day former Montreal Canadien teammate Jean Beliveau said he needed treatment for a cancerous tumor in his neck. Richard, the NHL's first 50-goal scorer, played 18 seasons from 1942 to 1960, amassing a then-record 544 goals with the Canadiens.

Wayne Gretzky returned to hockey Friday, not as a general manager or coach, but as the man with the final say on all on-ice decisions for the Phoenix Coyotes.

Right wing Marty McInnis, who suffered a sprained neck when he crashed headfirst into the boards Sunday against the Calgary Flames, hopes to play Saturday against the Nashville Predators or Sunday against the Chicago Blackhawks. His neck was too sore to play Wednesday against the Phoenix Coyotes, the second game he has missed. "It's like a spasm in my neck that won't go away," McInnis said. "I've got to get it to calm down."

The Pittsburgh Penguins aren't worried about Mario Lemieux's sore back--yet. Lemieux skipped a voluntary practice Monday but showed up at the Penguins' practice rink in Canonsburg, Pa., and told teammates he was feeling better. Lemieux hasn't played much worse since returning to the team than he did in Sunday's 4-2 loss to the expansion Minnesota Wild. He was held scoreless for only the second time in his 19-game comeback.

Defenseman Aaron Miller covered San Jose's Teemu Selanne like a wet blanket Saturday. Don't be surprised to see Miller doing the same thing tonight to Jeremy Roenick of the Phoenix Coyotes. It's Miller's duty to shadow the opposition's top offensive threats. It's why the Kings acquired him (and winger Adam Deadmarsh) from the Colorado Avalanche for Rob Blake last month. Miller is the Kings' stopper.
