TORONTO — Sears Canada says it will carry a new line of Wayne Gretzky menswear in an exclusive partnership with the Canadian hockey star.

The agreement was announced as Sears Canada (TSX:SCC) held its annual shareholder meeting in Toronto.

It’s not the first time the retired NHL player and coach has signed his name to a line of clothing.

Hudson’s Bay Co. previously carried a line of mens casual wear but that was discontinued about 10 years ago, and the Roots clothing company had a more sports-oriented clothing with sweatshirts, T-shirts and tuques.

Sears says its Gretzky lineup will feature knit tops, pants and sports jackets suitable for the office or after work.
