Sunday's Dump & Chase: Happy Birthday Wayne Gretzky!

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Greatest Player Ever turns 53 today, and I swear he doesn't look a day over 40. Seriously though, if you haven't looked at the numbers in awhile, check 'em out. Over 200 points in a season four times. The 92 goal season, the 73 career shorthanded goals, the almost 2 points per game he scored over his career…wild stuff. Plus, he suffered a digital head wound in perhaps one of the greatest movies of the 90's. You may be retired, Wayne, but you'll never be forgotten. Happy Birthday!
