The amount of NHL and Capitals records Ovechkin holds is insane. Starting with the most seasons with 50 or more goals, nine, which is the Capitals’ record and tied for most all-time with Gretzky and Mike Bossy. For Washington, the most power-play goals, which is also a league record, most power-play goals in a season (25), most career overtime goals, most rookie goals (52), most rookie points (106) and so much more.

Ovechkin is the first player to win the Hart Memorial Trophy, Maurice Richard Trophy, Art Ross Trophy, and Lester B. Pearson Award in the same season. He’s the only player in league history to be named an All-Star in each of his first five seasons in the NHL. He has the most league goals scored on the road and most by a left-wing in a season and career. And that’s just a few of his records.
