Historic achievements in the NHL can be presented beautifully, which is why Washington poignantly celebrated Ovi’s 1,500 points in the league. In the game against Dallas, he assisted Dylan Strome, becoming the 16th player in the history of the league and the first among the Russians to celebrate this great anniversary. Additionally, Ovi is the fifth player to do this with the same team.

In a specially prepared video, the Club recalled the main milestones of its superstar’s career: the first point in the NHL, the first 100 points of his career, 500 and 1000, 1100 and so on until 1400, the historic 800 and 802 . goals (the last one he moved was Gordie Howe from second place on the all-time sniper list), that same goal against Phoenix with a behind-the-ear layup (later recognized as the best in the first 100 years of the league), the “burning stick.”

The fans filled the stadium with applause and Ovechkin himself got up from the bench to greet the stands.

“He seems to be relentlessly reaching heights this club has never seen before,” Washington said on social media.

“The eight is still chasing the big guys,” Sportsnet responded to Ovi’s achievement.

“The Big Eight” were laconic on NHL social media.

“That’s a great number. “As I always say, I would never have done it without my teammates,” Sasha said after the game.

“This is another example of his greatness and what he’s been able to accomplish in this league,” head coach Spencer Carbery said.

“He is a living legend. It’s an honor to play with him. Hopefully, I’ll start giving him passes and he’ll have more goals,” said Dylan Strome, who also celebrated 100 NHL goals today. But the anniversary disc cannot be divided and, of course, it did not end up in Strome, but in Ovechkin’s collection. 1500 points – when will this happen again?

A unique event for Washington, where Ovechkin will forever remain the best and most popular player.
