Alex Ovechkin moved into 11th on the NHL career goals list on Monday, which earned him a shoutout from Teemu Selanne.
The Washington Capitals captain received a congratulatory message from the Hall of Fame forward after Ovechkin scored his 685th goal against the Carolina Hurricanes.
Selanne scored 684 goals in his 21-season NHL career but was tied with Ovechkin entering play Monday. Ovechkin scored twice in the first period, passing Selanne and moving within four goals of Mario Lemieux for 10th on the list.
Selanne doesn't think he's slowing down, adding a tweet that suggested Wayne Gretzky's record of 894 goals could be attainable.
"Congrats for passing me on the all-time scoring list," Selanne said in his message to Ovechkin. "You're gonna score a lot more goals, so keep it going and keep having fun."
