To put it in perspective, "the beast" Wayne Gretzky played 1487 games of NHL hockey and scored 894 goals. Second is Gordie Howe who played 1767 games and scored 801 goals. Alex Ovechkin is in a firm 8th place on the all-time scoring list (but so fun to watch no matter where he is on the ice, let alone this goal scoring leader board). I think he will bust through 700 by this weekend. Go CAPS!!!
