Wayne Gretzky started playing major junior hockey for thePeterborough Petes in the 1976-77 season in the OMHL (Now OHL) and the Sault Ste. Marie Grehounds in the 1977-78 season. He then singed a 7 year contract worth $1.75 million US with the Indianapolis Racers of the WHA when he was 17 the next season. The Racers where a struggling franchise always losing money, so he was traded to the Edmonton Oilers. The Season of 1979-80, the Edmonton Oilers where expanded into the NHL along with teams like the Winnipeg Jets and the Quebec Nordiques.At the End of the 1987-88 season, the Oilers traded Gretzky to the Los Angeles Kings were he would play for 7.5 seasons, before being traded off to the St. Louis Blues during the 1995-96 season. At the end of that season he signed with the New York Rangers where he retired 3 years later after the 1998-99 season.
