Oh NOVI Didn’t Part 300!

5 Apr

just another day at the office

Ovi played Babe Ruth tonight as he pointed towards the goal with his magic stick and blasted his 300th goal past Toronto net-minder Reimer! This puts Ovechkin into some super sweet company making him the 6th youngest NHL player EVER to make the milestone – with Gretzky, Lemieux, Hawerchuk, Bossy, Yzerman and now Ovechkin. A face only I could love? Maybe! A player only I could love, I think not!

Youngest players at time of 300th goal
Years Days
22 321 12/13/1983 Wayne Gretzky
23 179 04/02/1989 Mario Lemieux

25 60 03/23/1982 Mike Bossy

    The radio announcer said last night that of Ovi’s 300 goals, 98 are on the power play. That’s pretty incredible.

    Not incredible? Ovi in a towel. Even multiple towels. But I do like red Gatorade.
