FORT MCMURRAY, Alta. - Here are a few of the items from Shawn Chaulk's remarkable collection of game-used Wayne Gretzky memorabilia:

—The jersey Gretzky was wearing when teammate Steve Smith scored on his own net in a division final in April 1985 against the Calgary Flames. The Oilers lost the game and were eliminated from the Stanley Cup playoffs (to be included in later auction).

—The jersey he wore when he scored his 500th goal in a game against the Vancouver Canucks in November 1986. It was a three-goal evening for the Great One, the 500th into an empty net. He also wore the jersey in the playoffs the following spring (in the auction).

—A puck from the first NHL game for both Gretzky and the Edmonton Oilers on Oct. 10, 1979, against the Chicago Black Hawks. The Hawks won 4-2 (in the auction).

—The puck used to score Gretzky's 500th goal (in the auction).

—The puck used when he notched his 400th assist in a game against the Los Angeles Kings on Jan. 23, 1983. Jaroslav Pouzar was the goal-scorer and Jari Kurri also picked up an assist (in the auction).

—Seven pairs of gloves, including all the pairs Gretsky wore during the Stanley Cup playoffs with the Oilers, as well as the ones he wore during the 1986-87 season when he won his seventh straight Art Ross Trophy for most points (two pairs in the auction).

—Several pairs of skates, including the ones Gretzky wore when he scored his 500th goal and the pair worn the nights the Oilers won the Stanley Cup in 1985 and 1987 (1985 pair is in the auction).

—Gretzky's Jofa helmets, including one from the 1978 World Hockey Association season and NHL helmets from 1979, 1983 and 1987 (1979 helmet is in the auction).

—Miscellany including Gretzky's early-1980s Oilers Nike track suit and No. 99 practice bib (in the auction).

—Five official replica Stanley Cups previously owned by former Oilers owner Peter Pocklington and former Oilers public relations director Bill Tuele (not in the auction).

—More than 100 sticks from Gretzky's entire career, including from his days with the Ontario Hockey League Soo Greyhounds, the 1977 world juniors tournament and the World Hockey Association Indianapolis Pacers (the stick is inscribed 'Gretsky'). Also a selection used in Stanley Cup finals and the one from his final game with the New York Rangers on April 18, 1999 (some in the auction).
