Jagr is injured for his hometown team in CZE. Ovie is going to catch and pass Jagr I think.

I bet he passes 675 goals before his current contract term expires(2yrs after this one). He'll be 34. Barring some unforeseen health/injury issues. He'd have to do some incredible shit to get near 894 though.

At Ovechkin's current goal scoring pace, he'd need 1,477 games to reach 895.
For funsies, here are the top ten in games played by active players.

1. Jaromir Jagr 1990-91 1733
2. Patrick Marleau 1997-98 1562
3. Joe Thornton 1997-98 1493
4. Matt Cullen 1997-98 1433
5. Zdeno Chara 1997-98 1417
6. Henrik Sedin 2000-01 1318
7. Daniel Sedin 2000-01 1294
8. Scott Hartnell 2000-01 1240
9. Justin Williams 2000-01 1149
10. Jay Bouwmeester 2002-03 1106

I'm calling it doable, despite aging. Likely? Nope. Considering it's even doable is astounding.

I actually don’t think Ovechkin will age really well. Even though he’s such a prolific scorer, he’s also kind of a power forward and he doesn’t shy away from contact. If he were like Kucherov’s size and not a physical player, I think he’d take a decent run at 894. But he may break down before he gets a chance.

And let's not forget he had a stint where people thought he was seriously out of shape. Easy to slip back into bad habits. The guys that last really long are workout/health freaks.

Sure this is probably the most likely scenario and the same thing that people said when he signed his massive contract, but he has yet to slow down. I'm saying it's possible. And he is the same body type as Jagr.

He's taking workouts more seriously now and has been for a bunch of years. Sure, he can still fall back into the bad habits but I'm really not sure his wife will let him.... Seriously.

Look at who is solidly in the "underused" quadrant. Ya don't say...

Wow, worst used in the league according to points. Would be interesting to see who the other is, and the one who is overused.

ESPN reporting that Zdeno Chara and Jake DeBrusk will not play on Saturday.

Backes gets a game misconduct for a hit tonight.

In just his second game back from a 3-game suspension. Stay classy, Bruins.

Tonight's hit on Trocheck:
