    Finalists Special Guests Past Winners Ticket Order Form


    CANADIAN SPORT AWARDS In many ways, it's what he does off the ice as well as on it that makes Wayne Gretzky such a Canadian icon. Therefore, his role in assisting young Canadian athletes is being nationally recognized with his nomiation.

    Gretzky is a major contributor and spokesperson for minor hockey in Canada from the development to high performance programs. In 1998 he worked with the Canadian Hockey Association to create a training video for young players entitled "Train to Win."

    He also assisted in the preparation of the 1999 world junior team by providing inspirational messages to the team members. The junior program was coming off a tough eighth place finish at the 1998 world championships. This time they rebounded impressively to second place this past January.

    "Wayne is a huge supporter of hockey in Canada," said Bob Nicholson, president of the CHA. "And he will continue to do so through the rest of his playing career and post-career. He is a spokesperson of numerous charities that benefit amateur hockey in Canada."
