Evgeny Kuznetsov calls Alex Ovechkin ‘Jesus’ twice, believes Ovi will overtake Wayne Gretzky’s goal record in four years
After notching his third hat trick in six games, Alex Ovechkin now sits two goals away from 700 in his career.
Earlier in the week, Ovi’s friend and fellow countryman, Evgeny Kuznetsov spoke to NBC4 Washington and gave his opinion on if he thinks Ovi can catch Wayne Gretzky’s all-time goal record. Ovechkin sits 196 goals away from Gretzky’s 894 at age 34.
“As long as he stay healthy, he can play four more years for sure,” Kuznetsov said. “For him, 200 more goals is probably four years.”
