Gretzky records message, surprises dad for Father’s Day

Wayne Gretzky couldn’t see his dad in person on Father’s Day this year, but he still made sure to show his love appreciation.

The NHL icon released a special message on Twitter and delivered Tim Hortons coffee and donuts for his 81-year-old dad Walter to celebrate Father’s Day this year.

Tweet from @WayneGretzky: Like many of you, I???m unable to be with my Dad this Father???s Day. Thankfully, with a little help from my brother Glen and our friends at Tims, I found a way to make it fun for my Dad. Thanks Dad and thanks to all the great fathers out there.

Gretzky is quarantining outside Los Angeles while his dad is at home in Brantford, Ontario. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Gretzkys haven’t been able to see each other in person, but that didn’t stop Wayne from recording a message to celebrate all his dad had done in his hockey career.

“My first game when I was 6, you drove me to my game. My last game in the NHL, I drove you to my game,” Gretzky said to his dad in the message. “Miss you a lot, and I hope you miss me too.”

Then Gretzky revealed the great surprise, a van full of Tim Hortons coffee and donuts, which Walt presumably has been unable to get due to the pandemic.

Plenty of active hockey players shared Father’s Day messages on Sunday, including Max Domi, whose dad, Tie, played 16 NHL seasons with the Toronto Maple Leafs, New York Rangers and Winnipeg Jets.
