Alex Ovechkin scored his 700th career goal on Saturday becoming only the eighth player in NHL history to do so.
After the game, Ovechkin, standing in front of his locker at the New Jersey Devils’ Prudential Center, posed with the milestone puck.

Ahead of the game, Ovechkin said he was planning to keep the puck, stick, and gloves from his milestone marker, but his Northern Virginia home is quickly filling up with memorabilia.
“To be honest with you right now, I have a lot. My wife tell me to stop. We don’t have any space in our gym,” Ovechkin said. “It’s great for my family, kids, grandkids when I’m gonna be dead. My kids gonna look at it and appreciate it.”
