Ovechkin watch: 40×10

With last night’s goal in an unfortunate loss 18 feb, the Great 8, the Russian Machine, the Washington Capitals Captain and Winger-sniper, Alex Ovechkin found another spot in the record books with goal number 40 during the 2018-2019 regular season.

10 NHL seasons with at least 40 goals joining only Dionne and Lemieux with 10 and Gretzky with 12. Only Ovi and Lemieux achieved the feat with a single team.

8 NHL seasons to reach 40 goals first, extending his all time lead over Bobby Hull (6) and Esposito (5).

Enjoy it while you can even if you’re not a Caps fan because we might not see the likes of AO again anytime soon and there’s rarely, if ever, been a goal scorer quite like him.
