Ovechkin Could be Fifth-Fastest NHL Player to Hit 500-Goal Mark

Alexander Ovechkin's fantastic season continues. He's already passed Sergei Fedorov to become the top Russian NHL goal scorer of all time, and now he's closing in on becoming the fifth-fastest NHL player to reach the 500-goal plateau.

Ovechkin is currently third on the NHL's active goals scored list, behind only Jarome Iginla and Jaromir Jagr. For those scoring at home, Ovechkin passed Glenn Anderson to move into 43rd place on the all-time list, just one behind Lanny McDonald, who has 500.
