Alex Ovechkin scored goal #800 in his career, putting him one step closer to Gordie Howe’s second place record and Wayne Gretzky’s all-time goals record. He did it in Chicago on a hat-trick (798, 799, 800) in probably the best night that fanbase will see all year.
The Great 8 is 37 years old this season and needs 97 more goals to reach The Great One. And after a 50-goal season last year he’s on pace to do it before the age of 40.

Wayne’s record is too good to beat
