Wednesday night marked the first time TNT broadcasted NHL games since they and ESPN won the shared TV rights to the league in the U.S. TNT’s studio show featured a crossover appearance from Charles Barkley, who is the central personality on TNT’s highly successful “Inside the NBA” program, as well as analysis from the legendary Wayne Gretzky.
TNT’s NHL TV crew includes host Liam McHugh along with former players Gretzky, Anson Carter, Paul Bissonette and Rick Tocchet. “The Great One” is the biggest name on the crew by far.
Yes, TNT outbid ESPN for Gretzky’s on-air services. And Gretzky immediately drew attention online for his extremely dark hair, which seemed unnatural. Take a look at what people were saying about Gretzky’s hair on social media.
Here is his hair.

When it comes to hair stylists, whoever convinced Wayne Gretzky to color his hair is definitely not The Great One.

He may have retired after last season, but it's nice to see Marv Albert's hair will carry on at TNT on Wayne Gretzky's head.

Wayne Gretzky’s hair color — really the whole look of his hair — right now is a hilariously on the nose tribute to Marv Albert
