Wayne-Gretzky-North-Pole_v5_CLN-1040x572A Special Guest for the upcoming episode, “The Nightmare After Krustmas“, has been revealed. The episode is scheduled to air December 11, 2016.

Wayne Gretzky will guest star as himself in the 1th episode of season 28.

In the interview with Sportsnet, Al Jean said: “He’s smart, funny and we felt like (Gretzky) must have when he met Gordie Howe as a kid.”

Joel Cohen also added: “I’m a Calgary native and consequent Oiler-hater, so 99 and I had a lot to talk about, and even more to trash-talk about — Semenko, Fuhr, Steve Smith bouncing the puck off Fuhr. Through it all, he was as classy and generous as you hope an icon can be. It was almost enough for me to forgive him for repeatedly demolishing my Flames’ playoff hopes. Not quite, but almost.”

Stay tuned for more!
