Report: 'Mutual interest' between Wayne Gretzky, Capitals

Ian McLaren

The chatter surrounding Wayne Gretzky and the Washington Capitals continues to grow louder.

As per Luke Fox of Sportsnet, Gretzky has a personal relationship with Washington owner Ted Leonsis, and attended a Capitals game in the owner's box this season. 

As such, the Great One may be in line for a presidency role such as Brendan Shanahan in Toronto or Trevor Linden in Vancouver.
