Today Wayne Gretzky on Sportsnet 590 defends his comments about sanctioning Russian hockey during this war.

"I got some push back from people that said 'You know why punish the Russian kids?' It's not about punishing the Russian kids, what about the Ukrainian kids that are being killed daily? The Ukranian kids who are 12 and 14 years old and going to war. So I don't want anybody to be punished I just think it makes common sense that we shouldn't compete against this country right now while they are at war against an innocent country."
