Wayne Douglas Gretzky will always be remembered to this day as The Great One.  Regarded as the absolute best player in the history of the National Hockey League, The Great One  - upon his retirement in 1999 - left the rink holding forty regular-season records, fifteen playoff records, and six All-Star records.  Gretzky is the ONLY NHL player to total over 200 points in ONE season " a feat he not only accomplished once, but FOUR times, during his stellar career. offers hockey jerseys that may someday make YOU and YOUR team just as popular as Gretzky was in his hockey jersey #99, which was retired by ALL of the teams in the National Hockey League. dedicates itself to all the athletes out there - in every sport - who have a dream they wish to make come true.  And, with`s full line of hockey jerseys, hockey uniforms, mascot uniforms, and sportswear for the fans - so they can represent their team as the puck sails across the ice - is a never-ending line that is unmatched by any other uniform company in the world!  The products are extraordinary and the prices are the lowest anywhere.  And, if you DO come across one lower - will match it!  GUARANTEED!   

Wayne Gretzky was born and raised in Brantford, Ontario and honed his skills at a backyard rink.  He regularly played minor hockey at a level that far exceeded any of his  peers.  Oddly enough, the future Great One didn`t fit into the category of hockey player.  Although his stature and speed were simply average, Gretzky`s high intelligence and ability to read the game were unrivaled.  The Great One was adept at dodging checks from opposing players, and he could consistently and constantly anticipate where the puck was going to be at all times!  Gretzky also became known for setting up behind the net - an area that has gone down in history as Gretzky`s office, simply because of the amazing plays he made from that one position. says, Step into OUR office!  There is literally no other company out there who can produce the high-quality hockey uniforms we design and manufacture.  We have in-stock hockey uniforms and hockey jerseys that can be shipped out the same day in a huge variety of colors.  Not only that, but offers a custom line of hockey uniforms and hockey jerseys, allowing YOU and YOUR team to create the uniform that will one day become legendary!   

In 1978, Gretzky became a part of the Indianapolis Racers of the World Hockey Association (WHA), but was soon transferred to the home of the Edmonton Oilers.  When the WHA folded, the Oilers joined the National Hockey League, where Gretzky soon established himself with a multitude of scoring records, while leading his team to FOUR Stanley Cup championships.  The fans loved The Great One so much that there is a statue residing right outside Rexall Place in Edmonton, of Gretzky hoisting that precious Stanley Cup!   

The most amazing moment in NHL history, however, still remains The Trade.   Only two hours after the Oilers won the Stanley Cup in 1988, Gretzky learned that the Oilers were planning to trade him to another team.  The Great One was being  `shopped around` to Los Angeles, Detroit, New York, and Vancouver.   According to many the Oilers owner needed money because his other business ventures were not doing so well so trading the one and only Gretzky was his last resort. understands these factors in life and is ALWAYS there for YOU and YOUR team to find the best hockey uniforms and hockey jerseys in the business.  No matter what color or number changes on the hockey jersey you wear, is always there to support, cheer, and provide for each and every hockey player and hockey team!   

Gretzky didn`t want to leave Edmonton, but he later made a deal that involved bringing his teammates Marty McSorley and Mike Krushelnyski along with him to the Los Angeles Kings.  The Great One was a true team player, and would NOT leave his teammates behind!  On August 9, 1988, in a move that heralded significant changes in the NHL, the Oilers traded Gretzky - along with McSorley and Krushelnyski - to the Kings.  The Trade upset Canadians so much that New Democratic Party House Leader, Nelson Rits, demanded that the government block it!  Although they couldn`t, the owner of the Oilers was burned in effigy, and Gretzky, himself, was considered a traitor by some Canadians for turning his back on his home country.   

See that? KNOWS a hockey player who is as brilliant as The Great One is sought after by many, and wants to do everything for YOU and YOUR team to become the next  `hot` commodity in the world of hockey!   

Gretzky made an immediate impact on the ice in Los Angeles, scoring on his first shot in the first regular-season game.  The Kings had their best start ever, winning four straight on their way to qualifying for the playoffs.  And, despite being huge underdogs  against the defending Stanley Cup Champion Oilers, The Great One led the Kings to a shocking upset of his old squad!
