Wayne Gretzky could be on his way back to the NHL as an owner, but in an entirely new location.
The New York Post reported Friday that Gretzky has joined a group of investors trying to bring an NHL team to Seattle.
The Post states that Gretzky's group is one of three trying to get a team to the Pacific Northwest, though it's not known if the method would be to buy an existing franchise or set up an expansion team.
NHL commissioner Gary Bettman visited Seattle in May, meeting with mayor Ed Murray. An NHL spokesperson confirmed the meeting then and said the commissioner was there getting an update on the status of a new arena being proposed by investor Chris Hansen.
