Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin scored the 800th goal of his career Tuesday night, becoming the third player in NHL history -- behind Wayne Gretzky and Gordie Howe -- to reach the milestone.

He also became the first to do it with a single franchise, and it came as part of a hat trick performance in a 7-3 victory over the Blackhawks in Chicago.

"This ... it's huge. It's huge for hockey, it's huge for the organization," a drained Ovechkin told his teammates in the locker room after the win. "And to do it with you guys, it's special."

Patrick Kane: 'Trade Rumors Are Just Rumors'

Sep 22, 2022 3:10 PM

Patrick Kane is well aware he's been the subject of rampant trade speculation for months. The Chicago Blackhawks' winger just doesn't believe the hype.

"It was all just rumors," Kane said on Thursday from Chicago's training camp media availability. "A lot of the rumors are just rumors, maybe people looking for things to talk about in August when nothing's really going on with hockey, right? I don't think there have been any legitimate discussions between other teams and the Blackhawks."
