Wayne Gretzky Impressed with Sens

SUNRISE, Fla. The Great One predicts Ottawa hockey fans could be in for a treat this season.

After denying rumours he's about to become president of the Toronto Maple Leafs, Wayne Gretzky told Hockey Night in Canada radio Wednesday he's been impressed with the way the Senators have been playing early this year.

"The team that I am pleasantly surprised with, and how good they're playing and how much depth and talent they have for a young group, is the Ottawa Senators," said Gretzky from Los Angeles.

"I'm really impressed by how they're playing and how they've started. They are strong on the puck, solid defensively. They could be a big surprise. It could be a fun year for the people of Ottawa."

Gretzky noted before making the comments that people have been talking about Edmonton Oilers, New York Rangers, Los Angeles Kings and the Minnesota Wild "making a big splash," but he's liked the Senators thus far.
