Wayne Gretzky heard rumblings a couple of months ago that Canada's hockey team may be forced to change its logo for the 2010 Olympic Winter Games.
Gretzky, however, didn't think it would end up more than whispers.
"I kinda chuckled at it because I didn't think it would ever happen," he said of his autumn conversation with Hockey Canada president Bob Nicholson.
"Then he explained to me it did happen in the soccer tournament at the Summer Games. It looks like it probably is going to happen, and it's unfortunate."
The International Olympic Committee has a bylaw forbidding sport federations from displaying their logos on uniforms, which would include Hockey Canada's trademark Maple Leaf with a hockey player.
Should Hockey Canada change their logo for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver? Have your say in our forum.
