Wayne Gretzky Will Be The Recipient Of The 2021 Stan Musial Lifetime Achievement Award

from NHL.com,

Wayne Gretzky and his wife Janet will receive the 2021 Stan Musial Lifetime Achievement Award on Nov. 20.

The Musial Awards celebrate athletes who demonstrate sportsmanship and exemplify class and character, and the Lifetime Achievement Award honors those who had those qualities for which Baseball Hall of Famer Stan Musial was known. The ceremony will take place in St. Louis, where Musial played all 22 of his MLB seasons with the St. Louis Cardinals and where Gretzky played 18 games for the St. Louis Blues in the 1995-96 NHL season.

"Knowing how beloved Stan was and the way he carried himself on and off the field, it is tremendously humbling to receive an award named for him," Wayne Gretzky said.
