Breaking: Alex Ovechkin Overtakes Gretzky's All-Time Record

BY MARVIN AZRAK    FEBRUARY 11, 2024  (8:53)
Alex Ovechkin is trying to surpass Wayne Gretzky for the most goals of all time in NHL history and has struggled this season with 11 goals in 50 games. Yet today, the fabulous 8 has beat Gretzky regarding another goal stat!

Ovechkin Makes History, Surpasses Gretzky in Empty Net Goals



The Washington Capitals were hosted by the Boston Bruins today for a late afternoon tilt at TD Garden. The Capitals won the game 3-0 thanks to goals from TJ Oshie, Dylan Strome, and an empty netter from Alex Ovechkin! That empty netter puts Ovechkin past Gretzky and at the top of the NHL for most empty net goals of all time with 57!




Impressive stat, and maybe he'll even break Gretzky's NHL goal record of 892 eventually! He's currently at 834.
