Alexander Ovechkin continues to make history. Already regarded as one of the all-time greats, he’s not even done yet—with every season, he gets closer and closer to some huge NHL records, including Wayne Gretzky’s career goal total. Will Ovechkin manage to surpass the Great One’s 894 goals? Time will tell. In the meantime, we can all have fun following this future Hall of Famer’s amazing career.
Starting his playing career with Dynamo Moscow of the Russian Superleague at age 16, Ovechkin was selected first in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft by the Washington Capitals. Due to the lockout, however, he wouldn't make his NHL debut until 2005. In his first season, Ovechkin wasted no time in making his name known, and he concluded the 2005-06 schedule by winning the Calder Memorial Trophy as the NHL’s rookie of the year. In later seasons, he often ended up leading the NHL in goals scored, but his Capitals routinely ran out of steam in the playoffs. Ovechkin would have to wait until 2018 for his—and the Capitals'—first Stanley Cup championship.
