GRETZKY suffers another great loss
Mournful times for Coyotes head coach
By Rosie DIMANNO, Columnist
Ottawa -- On the evening, this past Saturday, when hockey was being celebrated coast-to-coast, the most famous native son of the sport had to pick up the phone and deliver yet another blow of sad news to his already grieving father.
"I had to pull my dad out of the hockey game in Edmonton and let him know what had happened," Wayne GRETZKY revealed last night, after the novice National Hockey League coach put his Phoenix Coyotes through a spirited practice at the Corel Centre.
GRETZKY's maternal grandmother, Betty HOCKIN, had just passed away at age 84, barely a fortnight after the death of her daughter, Wayne's mother, Phyllis.
Walter GRETZKY had been in Edmonton to help celebrate the father-son bonds of hockey, in what has become an annual televised spectacle of the national game.
"He came home Sunday morning."
A second family loss will bring Wayne GRETZKY back to his hometown of Brantford tomorrow for his grandmother's funeral.
These have been mournful times.
At Christmas, a visibly distraught GRETZKY dropped everything to hasten to the bedside of a beloved mother stricken with lung cancer. He would spend 10 days away from the game, to support his family and grieve.
"We've had a tough month. Unfortunately, everybody in life has to go through tragedies. We're not the only family that's gone through it."
But he'd barely had time to resume duties behind the bench when the family was swept up in sorrow once more.
"Sad day, sad week, sad month."
Hockey, at least, does provide a comfort, just the routine and distraction of it, coping with a team that is in a struggle to make the playoffs, surrounded by the infectious energy of young players, reminding GRETZKY too of the untroubled boy he'd once been. "Our young guys play hard and they're a real pleasure to be around."
It will be a special occasion this evening -- in a life that's been full of them -- when the Senators host Phoenix. This is where GRETZKY played his final game on Canadian soil six years ago after announcing his retirement.
"That was such an emotional night," he recalled. "Up until that time, only my inner family really knew (about the imminent retirement) and everybody else was sort of guessing.
"I'll never forget the ovation, the reception, that not only I got but my whole family got. I remember my mom and my dad were here, and my kids were here. It was pretty special."
Scrumming with reporters and looking backwards evoked an outpouring of nostalgia. But GRETZKY's eyes lit up especially and his winsome mood elevated when somebody mentioned ceremonies scheduled for Madison Square Garden tomorrow night, where Mark Messier's sweater will be retired.
They were an item, for so many years, GRETZKY and his stalwart ally, the Moose.
"He did so much for the game. He did so much for so many people his work ethic, his unselfishness, his Friendships. It's a bond that everyone seemed to have in those days in Edmonton."
As he has in the past, GRETZKY compared Messier to Gordie Howe. "We never expected to see that sort of a player come along again. But here's a guy who played almost as long as Gordie, probably played a similar game to that of Gordie Howe, and of all the people I knew, loved the game as much as Gordie Howe. So we were lucky in this sport that we were able to have two of these guys come through the games within, like, five years of each other."
With a chuckle, GRETZKY also recalled one particular game when he played against Messier.
"I remember him lining me up and sort of carrying me into the boards. He was telling me to hang on."
How weird, Messier slamming GRETZKY off the puck.
"Really, it sounded and looked worse than it was."

A young man's murder still matters in T.O.
By Rosie DIMANNO
Sixteen police constables, maintaining a careful four-foot distance from each other, set off on a bright and crisp day to conduct a grid search of a Scarborough field that lies between two elementary schools.
Just another Sunday morning in the city, but increasingly the occasion for the launching of murder investigations, trying to make sense out of another bloody mess arising from the evening before.
These officers are looking for… anything, although the instructions delivered emphasize the possibility of a small cellphone out there somewhere.
No such phone -- possibly belonging to the 17-year-old male victim whose remains have already been removed to the morgue -- was discovered.
This was not a shooting, but it is most definitely a homicide, Toronto's 10th murder in 2006.
Such has become the grim frequency of death by the gun in Toronto that it comes as something of a homicide throwback when murder by other means occurs when the deceased is a young male.
An autopsy this morning will likely determine cause of death. A cursory examination of the body yesterday was sufficient to reveal what was so palpably evident -- this teenager had suffered blunt trauma injuries, primarily about the head, with evidence indicating the unfortunate young man may have been beaten first and run over by a vehicle afterwards.
A white van was seen driving across the field late Saturday night and fresh tread marks on the ground reinforce that scenario. Police are looking for that van -- make and model unknown -- but confident they will find it.
"I believe this one is going to come together shortly," Det. John BIGGERSTAFF told The Star last night. "The van's going to show up, the pieces will all fall into place. It's not like a shooting, which are usually harder to piece together."
The victim is Kevin PERSAUD, a teenager who had been working a full-time job, living at home with his parents, who were in devastated shock yesterday. There is no evidence Persaud was ever "ganged-up," which is what comes immediately to mind when young men are murdered in Toronto these days. Nor is there any suggestion that this crime might have been provoked by ethnic grudges in a neighbourhood where youths of Southeast Asian descent are known to congregate, groups that have clashed violently before.
"I'm pretty sure that gang activity of any kind was not an issue here," said BIGGERSTAFF.
So what was the "issue"? Because a young man, little more than a boy really, is dead. And, as BIGGERSTAFF noted, "this was not a random encounter, it was a planned and intentional act."
And, because every homicide matters. This is still a city where murders matter and victims have names.
There are witnesses: who saw somebody running here on Saturday night, just behind Cardinal Leger Catholic School, deep inside this sleepy residential neighbourhood of house-proud properties and tidily maintained lawns, where kids play basketball in the driveway and couples walk their dogs.
It was a woman strolling with her dog across Canmore Park around 11 p.m. who came upon the body. Police from 43 Division received the call at 11: 51 p.m. and cruisers were screeching to the scene within minutes.
PERSAUD was lying in a pool of blood with obvious injuries to the head. It remains for pathologists to try and determine whether those blunt force injuries are responsible for PERSAUD's death, whether they were caused after being struck by the suspicious van, or if he was already lifeless before the added trauma of a hit-and-run.
The aforementioned cellphone, if it exists at all, was likely the property of PERSAUD, since he was known to own one and it wasn't found with the body.
Much of the investigation will now hinge on the quite remarkable talents of a reconstruction crew from the traffic unit. These crime scene specialists are able to map out -- following the trail of the tread marks and other clues embedded in the ground, analyzing "static measurements" and tire patterns -- where the vehicle came from and how it manoeuvred across the terrain.
A treadmark is nearly as conclusive as a fingerprint. But first, police will need a van to compare those markings with.
Toronto has become, in its ripening, a city no longer shaken to its roots by urban, or suburban, crime. Yet striking this close to home -- as PERSAUD's murder did in this particular neighbourhood there is still an element of discomfiture, if not quite disbelief.
"Scary, but what can you do?" shrugged Wayne POWELL, who lives directly across the street from the school, in a house where three children reside, one of them a Grade 8 student at Cardinal Leger.
"There are always little groups of teenagers who hang around behind the school at night. Not necessarily toughs or gangs, maybe just kids looking to get into mischief."
But last summer, there was another beating death down at the end of the road, and around the same time two people shot in a car not far distant.
"Sometimes, it just feels like it's all closing in on you."
Chelsea McCORMICK, 13, sidles into the doorway and casts her eyes towards her school. "I'll have to go there tomorrow. I'll be afraid to walk where it happened."
Next door, Anoj THAVARAJAH -- a Grade 7 student at Morrish Public School, which is situated on the far edge of the field, just beyond the baseball diamond -- says he was in his room playing video games when all the ruckus began Saturday night.
"I'm not scared, exactly, but I think, that could have been my brother. I mean, when you don't know why it happened."
His family only moved into this house last autumn. Anoj, 13, recalls how his father once chased down a vandal who'd tossed a brick through one of the windows when the house was still being constructed.
"We hadn't even moved in yet and already somebody was throwing bricks through the window. And then later, somebody took gasoline and started a fire in some other houses just behind here that were being built."
Petty vandalism, mischief-makers, bored kids. And then, on a quiet Saturday night, a teenage boy gets murdered.
It matters.

KWICINSKI, Larry
On Saturday, February 18th, 2006, Larry KWICINSKI lost his 9 month battle with pancreatic cancer. Larry passed away peacefully at his home in Woodside, California. Larry was born in Welland, Canada on August 5th, 1948. Larry moved to Toronto when he was 18 years old and lived there for more than 25 years. Larry moved from Toronto to California in 1998 with his wife, Nanci CALDWELL and his daughter, Adriana. Larry retired from the software industry 3 years ago where he was the Chief Executive Officer of a company he founded - Sales Gorilla. Larry also had a distinguished career at General Electric and Hewlett Packard for 10 and 8 years respectively. Larry was a man who lived every aspect of his life to the fullest. Larry could light up a room just with his presence; he didn't need words - tall and very handsome, his face warm and welcoming, his smile wide and eyes sparkling. And as his daughter, Adriana says, his wink could light a whole town of people's hearts. Larry loved to laugh and had a great sense of humour. Larry was known for his love of playing - Adriana's Friends saw Larry as their friend. He not only joined the kids in play but he was the impetus for so much of their fun. Nothing made Larry happier than spending a day playing with Adriana and her Friends. Larry was a well educated man, a wise man, a life long learner. Larry's first degree was a degree in Electronics from Ryerson; while he was at Hewlett Packard he went back to York University and did his M.B.A.; and when Adriana was a baby, he went back to school part time to University of Waterloo and received his Masters in Environmental Studies. Larry loved to read and to learn and although he would share his wisdom he did not have a need to prove his wisdom. Larry loved nature and the outdoors - it was a passion that Larry shared with Adriana. Larry had travelled to the Canadian Arctic many times throughout his life and began sharing the Arctic with Adriana when she was in 5th grade. Larry and Adriana had 4 wonderful trips to the Arctic together - 3 in winter and 1 in summer. Larry also loved kayaking, snowshoeing, canoeing and in recent years went back to his Canadian roots by taking up ice hockey. Perhaps more than anything, what defined Larry were his values. Larry was an honest man. True to himself and true to others. He was a man of the highest integrity. Larry was a man that defined himself by who he was not by what he had. Larry touched so many lives in such a positive way and he will be greatly missed. He is survived by his loving wife Nanci, and his adoring daughter Adriana. He is also survived by his parents Betty and Chester KWICINSKI (Welland, Ontario;) and his brothers and sisters (all of Canada:) Betty Lou DIMATTIO; Barry KWICINSKI; Brenda MICHENER Randy KWICINSKI; Cindy BLANCHARD; Jerry KWICINSKI; his wife's parents: Bill and Fran CALDWELL (Brockville, Ontario;) brothers-and sisters-in-law (all of Canada:) Mike DIMATTIO; JoAnne KWICINSKI Art BLANCHARD; Carol CALDWELL; Michael and Judy CALDWELL; Susan CALDWELL and Mark EGIT; Terri and Paul JENKINSON; Patti CALDWELL. He is survived by many nieces and nephews that loved their uncle dearly: Beth, Michael, Alison, Jessica, Justin, Alexandria, Curtis, Evan, Jessica, Jacob, Jennifer, Patrick, Shaindel, Ruby, Megan, Jill, Sam, Lee and Sophie. The family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be made in Larry's name to PanCan (www.pancan.org) or the Canadian Wildlife Federation (1-800-563-9453 Ext. 211).
