Washington Capitals left winger Alex Ovechkin’s 767th goal on Thursday against the New York Islanders moved him to third on the NHL’s all-time scoring list.

With his 37th goal of the season, Ovechkin drew level with Jaromir Jagr. The only players with more career goals than Ovechkin are Hall of Famers Wayne Gretzky (894) and Gordie Howe (801).

Ovechkin’s goal at 15:02 of the third period from an assist by compatriot Evgeny Kuznetsov gave Washington a 3-2 lead. The Islanders split late before the Capitals won 4-3 in a shootout.

By passing Czech Jagr, Ovechkin is now the NHL’s top scorer among European-born players.
