Ovie Hits 200/200 Mark in Four Years


With Ovechkin's 200th assist last night, he became the third player in NHL history to have 200 goals and 200 assists in their first four seasons in the league.

Ovechkin joins Wayne Gretzky, and Mario Lemieux in this feat.

Looking at the other phenoms in the league, Crosby and Malkin, here's how they stack up.

Malkin will need 15 assists and 86 goals in his next season to achieve the milestone.
Crosby has hit the 200-assist mark, but will need 71 goals by the end of the season to reach the mark. (keep in mind, Crosby was injured last season)

Alex Ovechkin: 218 goals, 200 assists, 416 career points, first four years.


I considered writing a post recollecting memories of Alex's first four years, but frankly, I think this accomplishment speaks for itself. What can you really say about Alex that hasn't already been said? The stats, YouTube videos and love of the game emanating from his style of play say more about this accomplishment than I possibly could.

M.V.P.

    You sir are a rare blogger. You know when to talk and when to shut up. Kudos, some others could learn from you.

  3. I can't think of any reason they would have compaired crosby to A.O. They are two different players and crosby has just fallen off of the radar.
