Paulina Gretzky, daughter of Hall of Fame hockey player Wayne Gretzky sings the Canadian national anthem before the World Cup Hockey semifinal game between Canada and the Czech Republic, in Toronto, September 11, 2004.


Paulina Gretzky says she's heading to Toronto for an unspecified upcoming work project.

The daughter of NHL great Wayne Gretzky tweeted that she's planning a trip, but didn't say when she would be coming.

"Counting down the days till I'm working in Toronto," she posted on Monday.

It's unclear exactly what she's working on, but the 23-year-old has a varied past in the entertainment industry.

She had a small role in the 2009 musical remake Fame, modelled for the cover of Flare magazine in '05 and released a solo album, Collecting Dust, in 2006.

If her business in Toronto is music-related, she might have offered a clue on Wednesday when she tweeted praise for her vocal teacher Geeta Novotny, whom Gretzky called a "talented and beautiful role model."

Aside from her artistic ventures, Gretzky has also made a name for herself with her popular Twitter account, which has more than 80,000 followers.

In the fall, she took a brief break from the site, prompting speculation that her famous father objected to some provocative photos she posted.
