Hockey Quotes

"You miss 100% of the shots you never take."
- Wayne Gretzky

"A good hockey player plays where the puck is. A great hockey player plays where the puck is going to be."
- Wayne Gretzky

"Either you give it right back or the next thing you know everyone and his brother will be trying you on for size."
- Doug Harvey

"Some guys play hockey. Gretzky plays 40 mph chess."
- Lowell Cohn

Hockey players have fire in their hearts and ice in their veins.

- Wayne Gretzky

- Bobby Orr
