Earlier, the Russian scored a goal in the NHL regular season game against Colorado (2:3), which was his 31st of the season and 811th of his career. Gretzky’s record is 83 goals.
Ovechkin needs two seasons to break Gretzky’s record. Stay healthy for two years and that’s it. As we can see on this season, his sniper talent has not disappeared, he has already reached the age of 30. Until the end of the championship, he will score another 15-20 goals, and in the next two he will have to score 30 goals each. If Sanya breaks Gretzky’s record, he can be called the best hockey player in history, Gadzhiev told RB Sport.
