Ovechkin ties two legends with this impressive milestone

Josh Vold   ·   16 janvier 2020
Alex Ovechkin scored his 30th goal of the season on Thursday night against the New Jersey Devils. This was Ovechkin's 15th consecutive season of 30 goals or more, which ties him for first all-time with Mike Gartner and Jaromir Jagr.

Gartner still holds the NHL record for most 30-goal seasons, with 17. Ovechkin is the first to do it with the same team,

How many goals has Larry Murphy scored in total in the regular season during his NHL career?
187 goals
287 goals
387 buts
437 goals
487 goals
587 goals


Ovechkin is tied with a couple very talented players. Mike Gartner is seventh all-time in goals with 708 and 31st all-time in points with 1335. He is the only player in NHL history to never play in the cup final or win an NHL award but still be elected into the Hall of Fame. He has gone down as one of the best players to never lift Lord Stanley.

As for Jagr, he sits third all-time in goals with 766 and second all-time in points with 1921. He is a five-time Art Ross winner, two-time Lester B. Pearson Award winner, a Hart Trophy winner, and a two-time Stanley Cup champion. He is still playing professionally in the Czech Republic, but when he finally decides to hang up his skates, the Hall of Fame will be right there waiting for him.



Ovechkin is in his 15th season now, but he is showing no signs of slowing down. It's pretty safe to say that he has a couple more 30-goal seasons in him. In a couple of years, Ovechkin will be the all-time leader in most 30-goal games, and the next record on his radar will be Gretzky's all-time goal record.
