Evgeny Kuznetsov jokes that Wayne Gretzky will pay Alex Ovechkin’s opponents so all-time goals record is not broken
Alex Ovechkin scored his ninth goal of the 2022-23 season on Thursday, giving him 789 career goals. That leaves The Great Eight just 106 goals from overtaking Wayne Gretzky for the all-time lead.
Evgeny Kuznetsov has ridden shotgun with Ovi for a lot of those goals over the past five or so seasons. Kuzy sat down with former Caps forward Andrei Nikolishin, during a “Slippery Ice” interview, to talk about Ovechkin’s chase of Gretzky.
