Wayne Gretzky Jersey Information and Bio

He has been called the greatest hockey player of all time by countless sports writers, hockey fans, and the National Hockey League (NHL) itself—Wayne Gretzky, also known as “The Great One” was born in Brantford, Ontario where his on ice exploits--even as a youngster--became the stuff of legend.  Look in any NHL arena on game night or walk into any hockey event or card show in Canada and you'll probably see plenty of Wayne Gretzky jerseys.

The Indianapolis Racers of the World Hockey Association (WHA) signed him in 1978 for his first gig in professional hockey, at the age of 17. Gretzky signed a 10-year deal with the Edmonton Oilers just before the WHA collapsed in 1979, at which team the team was absorbed into the NHL. He quickly became known for his adeptness on the ice, cleverly reading plays and dodging opposing players’ checks. Gretzky won the coveted Hart Memorial Trophy as the NHL’s most valuable player his first year with the league, and went on to lead the Oilers to three Stanley Cups, in 1985, 1987 and 1988. The Oilers traded Gretzky to the Los Angeles Kings after the 1988 championship, where he was immediately named the team’s alternate captain. The next few years saw Gretzky move from L.A. to St. Louis to, finally, the New York Rangers. Gretzky finished his amazing career playing in Madison Square Garden on April 18, 1999. Upon his retirement, Gretzky’s numbers were staggering: Top scorer in NHL history with 200 plus points scored in four separate seasons (a number still unattained by any other player in a single season), 40 regular-season records, 15 playoff records and six All-Star Game records. Wayne Gretzky jerseys are a must-have for all hockey fans.

Gretzky’s jersey number 99 has been permanently retired by every franchise in the NHL. But that doesn’t mean they’re not still available for fans to purchase. Like all NHL jerseys, Wayne Gretzky jerseys come in styles like Authentic, Premier, Replica, Vintage, Fashion and Practice. There are sizes for men, women, youth and kids. The L.A. Kings Wayne Gretzky 1992 Authentic jersey is a classic.

Nothing comes close to a Wayne Gretzky jersey in NHL Authentic style. These jerseys are made stitch-by-stitch to be just like Gretzky’s on-the-ice gear. Sized 46 to 60, fans should take their body’s measurements—front, back and chest—and use the sizing chart on Pro Sports Jersey to find their fit. This goes for all NHL jerseys in adult sizes. A Premier jersey is second best only in lighter materials, which also bring down the price. They are sized small to XXXXL for men and small to XXL for women. Replica jerseys are the best for fans’ pocketbooks, with all the style of any other NHL jersey. They come in sizes small to XXL, as do Practice, Fashion and Vintage jerseys, for men and women depending on style. Wayne Gretzky jerseys also come in small to extra large sizes for children. Jerseys for babies and toddlers can be purchased in normal clothing sizes.   The only question is...which Gretzky jersey do you want to buy?  The classic Oilers model from the 1980s?  The Kings model?  The New York Rangers' iconic blue or one from his brief stay in St. Louis?  And don't forget the Team Canada and Gretzky All-Star jerseys that are out there.   It might be worth starting a 'collection' of Gretzky jerseys to fully represent one of sports' greatest careers.
