AB: In this book on Edmonton's history is a short essay by hockey legend Wayne Gretzky who briefly recalls his initial experiences with pro-hockey fame from the moment his plane landed at the press conference (having initially landed at the wrong airport) and having stayed his first three weeks with head coach Glen Sather who would make a prophetic remark on Gretzky's destiny as team captain.
