Gretzky Discussed Gambling Weeks Ago

Gretzky in damage control on wiretap

Former hockey superstar Wayne Gretzky and his friend Rick Tocchet were overheard on state wiretaps discussing how authorities found out about Tocchet’s multimillion-dollar gambling operation and ways the two could minimize the fallout for themselves and Gretzky’s wife, according to a law enforcement source.
The conversation took place several weeks ago, the source said, long before authorities announced that Tocchet and a New Jersey State Police trooper were being charged with running a sports-betting ring whose customers included at least a dozen National Hockey League players.
