Mario Lemieux hasn’t said “congratulations” to Alex Ovechkin for moving up the all-time goal list and bumping him out of the Top Ten. It probably just slipped his mind.
Grocery shopping, buying new suits that are too long in the arms, re-gelling his hair–the man’s busy!
In other news, here are the hockey Hall of Famers who found the time in their busy schedules to say congrats to Ovi:
— Teemu Selanne (@TeemuSel8nne) January 14, 2020
Yzerman not only congratulated Ovi, but he also asked to be invited to the party if Ovi reaches Gretzky’s record.
9. Alex Ovechkin (693)
10. Steve Yzerman (692)
Keep climbing @Ovi8!! 🚨

Obviously, Ovi’s breaking records at a record-breaking speed, but…c’mon, Mario. You’re one of Ovi’s idols!
In his past five games Alex Ovechkin has scored 11 goals, giving him 695 for his career, passing in the process:
12. Teemu Selanne 684
11. Mario Lemieux 690
10. Steve Yzerman 692
9. Mark Messier 694

Be a polite Canadian about it or we’ll ask Luigi to do the video instead.
