Wayne Gretzky's $22,900,000 mansion is back on the market after a roller coaster ride

Hockey legend Wayne Gretzky is selling a sprawling California mansion, for the second time, for US$22,900,000.

Gretzky and his wife Janet originally built the property in 2002, and lived there for about 5 years before selling it to former Major League baseball player Lenny Dykstra for US$18,500,000. Gretzky, who spent a big part of his career playing for the L.A. Kings, was head coach of the Phoenix Coyotes at the time so he bought another place in Arizona.

Dykstra, who has fallen on hard times since retiring from baseball, tried to sell it in 2008, but because of the financial crisis, there were no takers. It ended up being auctioned off to investors for $760,000, which happens to be less than the current average selling price of a home in Toronto and Vancouver. But on the condition that the buyer would pay the nearly US$12 million still owed on it.

When the Gretzkys returned to L.A. they bought it back for US$13.5 million and have spent millions on renovations.
