Wayne Gretzky selling Lake Sherwood mansion for $10.5 million

Wayne Gretzky mansion

Wayne Gretzky and his wife Janet have been busy making all kinds of real estate moves in Southern California, and it looks like they are ready to unload their latest property.

According to The Real Estalker, the Gretzkys have listed one of their mansions in the exclusive Lake Sherwood area of Westlake Village/Thousand Oaks for $10.5 million. This is a different listing from the Lake Sherwood mansion they sold to Lenny Dykstra for $18.5 million in 2007. The couple also reportedly has a four bedroom, four bathroom place in Lake Sherwood listed for $1.899 million.

The current home listed for $10.5 million has five bedrooms, six bathrooms and is 8,711 square feet. It’s been on the market since Jan. 10 and the price has remained unchanged. It appears that the Gretzkys originally purchased the home for $2.765 million in Nov. 2009 and made significant additions/upgrades. We can confirm they applied for a permit in 2012 to add a swimming pool and spa to the home.

Here’s what is said about the home on Redfin:

Some estates are so exceptional that it merely leaves you breathless from the very first footstep of the front door. 129 Hampstead Court is that property. Each and every square inch of the interiors were composed with architectural integrity and refinement, passion and emotion. Rare is a home built with such consideration. Interplay of decadent textures and clean lines are highlighted by natural light that beams through high soaring windows and doors. The exterior is a personal oasis, reflecting the architectural brilliance of the interiors. This residence distinguishes itself as unparalleled in terms of quality, privacy, luxury and chic sophistication.

Sounds like a place where you’d love to live, right? Below are some more pictures of the beautiful home:

Marc-Andre Fleury made incredible shootout save on Daniel Alfredsson (Video)

The Pittsburgh Penguins defeated the Detroit Red Wings in a shootout on Wednesday night thanks to an incredible save from Marc-Andre Fleury and a bizarre goal. Let’s talk about that save first.

After the Penguins missed their first attempt in the shootout, Fleury somehow got his glove down on the ice to stop a nifty backhand attempt from Daniel Alfredsson. It looked like Alfredsson had Fleury beat when the goaltender stuck his stick out, but Fleury was still able to react in time to protect the far post.

Marc-Andre-Fleury-save

Following Fleury’s amazing save, Penguins forward Jussi Jokinen scored what turned out to be the game-winning goal. He needed a lot of luck. Red Wings goalie Jonas Gustavsson poked the puck off Jokinen’s stick only to watch it deflect over his glove and into the back of the net.

The Penguins have locked down the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference, so they weren’t really playing for much. Still, that’s about as good as it gets for a shootout in front of the home fans.

Christian Ehrhoff has ear sliced open by puck

Christian-Ehrhoff-sliced-ear

Buffalo Sabres defenseman Christian Ehrhoff is lucky to have woken up on Monday morning with two ears. During his team’s loss to the Philadelphia Flyers on Sunday, Ehrhoof took a puck to the side of the head. That ringing noise he heard may have been the sound of his ear splitting in two.

If you have a strong stomach, feel free to proceed through the jump.

Red Wings prospect Mitch Callahan took a puck to the mouth and this happened

Mitch-Callahan-puck-to-face

Detroit Red Wings prospect Mitch Callahan, who currently plays for the Grand Rapids Griffins, showed everyone on Wednesday night that he is not afraid to take a hit. And by that we mean Callahan is a true hockey player who can eat a puck and live to joke about it on social media.

If you are squeamish, we don’t recommend clicking after the jump. Like most other players who have fought a puck, Callahan lost. Proceed if you dare.

Did Sidney Crosby flop after getting smacked by linesman (GIF)

The Pittsburgh Penguins lost a virtually meaningless game against the Carolina Hurricanes last night, and Sidney Crosby paid the price. The Penguins’ captain was smacked in the face as he skated from the bench area at the start of one of his shifts.

No penalty was called, which is an absolute outrage. Did you see the way Crosby hit the deck? The referee obviously whacked him pretty hard, and the play should have drawn a roughing or high hit penalty at minimum. Was it intentional? That’s debatable. We’re just glad Sid is OK.

Jonathan Toews injured by huge hit from Brooks Orpik (Video)

Brooks-Orpik-levels-Jonathan-ToewsChicago Blackhawks nation is holding its collective breath after Jonathan Toews left Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Penguins with what appeared to be an injured left arm. Toews, who has not missed a game this season, was the recipient of a massive hit from Penguins defenseman Brooks Orpik in the second period.

Orpik lowered his shoulder and leveled Toews with what appeared to be a clean hit. Some have argued that Orpik, a known big hitter, targeted the head area, but he lowered his shoulder and did not lead with his elbow. Toews skated off under his own power but did not return to the game.

Orpik is not expected to face disciplinary action for the hit.

“There’s no penalty,” he said after the game, according to the Chicago Tribune. “I think that hit happens 10 times a game.”

Toews has racked up 68 points this season and is arguably Chicago’s most important player. The Blackhawks have lost four of their last five games and are not playing their best hockey heading into the postseason. If Toews is forced to miss a significant amount of time, they could be in serious trouble in the first round.

Jonathan Quick makes absurd save against Jets (Video)

Jonathan Quick made 24 saves in the Los Angeles Kings’ 4-2 win over the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday, and none were as pretty as the one seen above.

Seriously, how the heck did he do that? I mean that’s using your entire body to make a save. Now you know where they get the expression “stand on his head” when describing goalies. Wow.

Jonathan Quick save

Quick entered Saturday’s game fourth in the NHL with 2.06 goals allowed per game.
