Hockey's "The Great One" has returned to St. Louis. Wayne Gretzky, who played briefly for the Blues during the 1995-1996 season, recently purchased a home in Frontenac.
Real estate records show that Gretzky and his wife, Janet, paid $500,000 for the four-bedroom home on July 31.
Janet grew up in Bridgeton and attended Pattonville

The 3,200-square-foot home sits on over an acre of land and was built in 1936.
