FORT MCMURRAY, Alberta (AP) - A jersey worn by Hockey Hall of Famer Wayne Gretzky will go on the auction block this week in Montreal.

Sports collector Shawn Chaulk will sell the Edmonton Oilers’ jersey worn by the Great One when he broke Phil Esposito’s single-season scoring record of 76 goals. Gretzky broke the record with a hat trick against Buffalo in the last seven minutes of a game on Feb. 24, 1982.

Gretzky finished with a record 92 goals that season, a mark that still stands.

Chaulk says the jersey has “significant wear” and “dirty” with “lots of marks and identifiable intricacies and burns.”

The price? Perhaps $250,000, he says.

Last summer, Chaulk sold a trove of game-used Gretzky sticks, pucks, skates, gloves and jerseys.
