The Edmonton Oilers feel fortunate to have one of hockey’s greatest ambassadors available to them.

Wayne Gretzky was back in town Wednesday and swung by the Fairmont Hotel MacDonald to be the guest of honour at a breakfast organized by the club.

“He was coming in to do some work for one of his charities near Edmonton and one of his sponsors, TD Bank, had him out in Alberta to do some work with their company,” said Oilers president and CEO Patrick LaForge. “So he had a morning free and he contacted me and asked if there was anything he could help with and spend some time with our customers.
