Gretzky's office
n. In ice hockey, the area behind the opposition's goal.

Example Citation:
"Ken Dryden, writing in Sports Illustrated years ago, alluded to [Wayne] Gretzky's low panic threshold. He would wait until the last second before committing himself to a play. While others would pass or shoot, he would hold the puck until a man was open or the goalie was down, which was why he was so effective from behind the net, the patch of ice known as 'Gretzky's office.' "
—William Houston, "Skinny, smart and the greatest ever," The Globe and Mail
