MSG Networks is continuing its extensive coverage of the New York Rangers with a day dedicated to the Great One, Wayne Gretzky.

Wayne Gretzky played for 20 years in the National Hockey League and the New York Rangers were lucky enough to have him don No. 99 for the Blueshirts at the tail-end of his career.

Saturday afternoon, Madison Square Garden Network will celebrate the Great One’s time in New York. His debut game as a Ranger in Boston, the incredible playoff run in 1997, and of course, his final NHL game in 1999 at the Garden.

Gretzky retired after appearing in 1487 games during his glorious 20-year career. He netted 894 goals and 1963 assists for a total of 2,857 points.

A four-time Stanley Cup Champion, two time Conn Smythe winner, Gretzky also won the Hart Trophy as the NHL’s Most Valuable Player nine times.

The complete schedule will begin at 2 p.m. ET. Saturday afternoon and each re-run will last two hours.
