MOSCOW, December 12. /TASS/. Alexander Ovechkin is the first Russian ever in the us-based National Hockey League (NHL) to score 200 goals on power-play and is also now the 18th player of all time to clear this mark.

The Russian scored the 200th power-play goal on the 14th minute of Sunday’s match between his Washington Capitals club and Vancouver Canucks. The goal also put an end to his seven-game scoreless draught, which was the longest in Ovechkin’s career since 2010.
The 31-year-old Russian forward also became the third European in the North American league to score 200 goals on power-play after Finland’s Teemu Selanne (3rd place with 255 goals) and Jaromir Jagr of the Czech Republic (12th place with 212 goals).
The first place in the list of the best NHL power-play scorers is occupied by Canada’s Dave Andreychuk with 274 goals.
