The Great 8 and Auston Matthews are neck and neck in a crazy stat shocking fans.

The Remarkable Stat

Alex Ovechkin and Auston Matthews are known as two of the greatest goal-scorers of the 21st century. While Matthews is known for his snap-shot and Ovechkin is known for being able to score from his spot on the powerplay, both are able to put the puck in the net unlike any other.
Recently, a stat surfaced showing how close Matthews is to Ovechkin.
Auston Matthews goals 25 years and 328 days into his career (as of today): 299

Alex Ovechkin goals 25 years and 328 days into his career (as of today): 301

Could Matthews Be The Greatest Goal-Scorer Of All Time?

Currently, Alex Ovechkin sits at 822 career goals and is chasing down Wayne Gretzky's total of 894. If he plays for 3-4 more years, he will certainly have the title of the number-one goal scorer in NHL history.

While Ovechkin had the lockout preventing him from playing an entire season at the age of 25 and 328 days, Matthews had the covid shortened season and injuries.
Last season while struggling with injury, he still managed to post 40 goals which is quite impressive. If Matthews can return to form, he could potentially surpass Ovechkin in goals as long as he stays healthy and consistent.
