About Stamp

Since the formation of the National Hockey League® in 1917, generations of Canadians have trained, practised and played their hearts out for a chance to skate in the NHL®. Our deep connection with the game explains why Canada has created so many legendary players. Maurice Richard claimed three famous firsts and captured the imagination of fans across the country. A national icon, Jean Béliveau retired with the most points in the history of the Montreal Canadiens®. Gordie Howe, who embodied the game so completely that he was nicknamed “Mr. Hockey,” played longer as a professional than anyone before or since. Bobby Orr was the greatest defenceman the League had ever seen, while “The Magnificent One” – Mario Lemieux – thrilled fans in Pittsburgh with 17 seasons of effortless scoring. And of course, Wayne “The Great One” Gretzky claimed over 60 NHL records and left an enduring mark on the game.

Issued to coincide with the NHL’s 100th anniversary, these stamps commemorate six players whose names, numbers and achievements recall legendary moments in the history of the game that are sure to inspire Canada’s next generation players.

Wayne Gretzky

Wayne Gretzky played 20 NHL seasons with the Edmonton Oilers, Los Angeles Kings, St. Louis Blues and New York Rangers from 1979 to 1999. In 1,487 regular-season games, he scored 894 goals, 1,963 assists and 2,857 points – all NHL records. Even if he had never scored a goal, his career assists total would rank him above all other players in points. He retired holding more than 60 NHL records, including the fastest player to score 50 goals in a season, accomplished in a remarkable 39 games during the 1981-82 campaign. Gretzky is a four-time Stanley Cup champion, two-time Conn Smythe Trophy winner, captured the Art Ross Trophy 10 times and the Hart Trophy nine times. Gretzky was also recognized on five occasions with the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy for sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct, and honoured with the Lester Patrick Trophy for his contribution to hockey in the United States. Gretzky’s No. 99 was retired League-wide upon retirement and he was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1999.
