The wife of hockey's Great One was implicated in 'Operation Slapsot,' a gambling scandal that broke on the eve of the 2006 Winter Olympics. Janet Jones was one of several people accused of placing some hefty bets with an illegal sports betting ring operated by a New Jersey state trooper and her husband's colleague, former Phoenix Coyotes assistant coach Rick Tocchet. Reports said the Gretzky's had wagered more than $500,000, including $75,000 on the Super Bowl, but never bet on hockey games. While the gambling ring may have been illegal, simply placing bets with it was not, so Jones and Gretzky never faced charges.
