Ovechkin ready to resume chase of Gretzky NHL goals record with Capitals - NHL.com

Ovechkin stated his intention to try to chase down Gretzky’s record after he signed a five-year, $47.5 million contract to remain with the Capitals on July 27. He hasn’t said if he plans to continue playing in the NHL after the contract expires but made it clear Thursday he has no interest in staying in the game as long as Jagr, who will turn 50 on Feb. 15 and continues to play for his hometown team, Kladno, in the Czech Republic.
