Wayne Gretzky made a name for himself throughout the hockey community before he was even 10-years-old. By the time the Brantford, Ontario native was six-years-old, he was already playing against kids nearly four years older than him.

However, not everyone was a hockey fan so not everyone knew who he was.

A photo from one of Gretzky’s old yearbooks recently surfaced, and believe it or not they spelled his name wrong.


Whoever was on the yearbook committee should have been fired!

We know it’s just a school yearbook, but you’d think they would double check the spelling of the names before publishing the final product.

At least that error happened when he was just a kid as he was recently presented with a personalized soccer jersey, only his name was once again misspelled.

The NHL’s all-time leading scorer received his very own jersey when he visited Tottenham a couple of years ago, only they misspelled his name by adding an “S” instead of a “Z”.
