NY1 VIDEO: As NY1 News revisits its 20-year history, the station looks back at reporter Budd Mishkin's story on New York Rangers center Wayne Gretzky's April 1999 announcement that he was hanging up his skates after a legendary career.

NY1 FOLLOW-UP Following Gretzky's retirement, the NHL retired his number 99 for the entire league – making him the only player ever to receive that honor. And the Hockey Hall of Fame waived the mandatory three-year waiting period in order to immediately induct him.
