TORONTO -- Wayne Gretzky's daughter, Paulina, is hoping for a hit on the music charts.

The 17-year-old daughter of the hockey icon and actress Janet Jones has released a debut single called "Collecting Dust."

The eldest of five made her singing debut in 2003 in Edmonton, in front of roughly 8,000 fans watching the former stars of the Edmonton Oilers and Montreal Canadians.

The following night, the then-14-year-old belted out "I Will Remember You" before 57,167 fans as the Oilers skated onto the ice to face the Montreal Canadians at Commonwealth Stadium.

Paulina Gretzky started modeling last year and recently made her acting debut in the Justin Timberlake flop "Alpha Dog."

Wayne Gretzky is currently the managing partner and coach of the Phoenix Coyotes.
