Catching up with The Great One 

March, 27, 2010

LAS VEGAS -- Wayne Gretzky is not going to the KHL. The Great One was very quick to shoot down the rumor that he was considering a move to Russia to continue his coaching career.

"I'm not going to Russia," said Gretzky, who couldn't help but laugh and shake his head when asked about a report that he was on the short list for the coaching position in St. Petersburg. "It's definitely not happening."
