Nobody knows hockey quite like Wayne Gretzky, he’s called The Great One for a reason and that’s because he’s the greatest player that’s ever played the good old game.

Gretzky scored 2,857 points in his NHL career, almost 1,000 points more than second-place Jaromír Jágr. But this postseason, Gretzky is scoring even more points with his picks. The now TV personality working for TNT has a perfect bracket through the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Despite five-game sevens, Gretzky is eight-for-eight on his picks.

Gretzky only has one upset picked for the second round, and that’s the Colorado Avalanche losing to the St. Louis Blues. Gretzky even has the Blues going to the Stanley Cup Finals, but losing to Carolina.

While people were counting out the Avs, they found their championship fire

The sky is the limit for the Avalanche after ripping off five wins in a row, and all that chatter about back-to-back titles is completely fair game
