A regular toaster may be good, but a Wayne Gretzky toaster is a Great One.

Wayne Gretzky, Jonathan Toews and Connor McDavid are each lending their likeness to the Canadian Tire Jumpstart program "Give a Toast." Fans bought up the limited-edition appliances that toast bread while branding each player's face on every slice.

The toasters were so popular all three styles sold out in a day.

Each toaster was given a name, and Toews, McDavid and Gretzky each recorded an incredible video to promote sales.

Gretzky's is being called "The Great Toaster."
