    Gretzky returns to NHL fold as official ambassador of centennial celebration

    The National Hockey League was founded on November 26, 1917. Almost ninety-nine years later, the commissioner of the league, Gary Bettman, was in Toronto to announce that Wayne Gretzky, arguably its greatest player ever, would be the official ambassador of its centennial celebration.

Per Sportsnet, the Bruins have inked the talented, agitating winger to a hefty eight-year, $49 million contract extension — one that carries an average annual cap hit of $6.125 million per season. “I have been a Bruin since the start of my pro career and there is no place I would rather play,” Marchand said in a statement. “I look forward to doing everything I can to help our team achieve success and bring the Stanley Cup back to Boston.” This news comes with Marchand heading into the final year of his current deal, a four-year, $18 million pact with a $4.5M AAV — so it’s a pretty nice pay bump.
