Ovechkin Looks to 2025 for All-Time Record

Can Alex Ovechkin chase Gretzky's Goal Mark?

Ovechkin looks to 2025 for All-Time Record

The Washington Capitals just got eliminated by the New York Rangers in a four-game sweep. And superstar winger Alex Ovechkin had zero points and just five total shots on goal. The second-best goal scorer in National Hockey League history ends his 19th season, which is his worst statistical year.

People are now wondering if the “Great Eight” can surpass Wayne Gretzky for the all-time mark goal-scoring record. The Moscow native who turns 39 before the next training camp in September needs just 42 goals to eclipse “The Great One” for the record.

There are several NHL bets today with markets regarding Ovechkin’s historic pursuit. A variety of props for the 2024-2025 NHL regular season are available. We will go over some of these options that seem like the best return on investment.

When the Capitals are on the power play (PP), the face-off circle to the left of the goaltender has been referred to as “Ovi’s Office”. This is where he often scored, especially on a one-timer play. With that being his favorite place to shoot from, one bet worth looking at would be the “power play” prop at a +200 price. Ovechkin has scored at least 10 PP goals in 12 of his last 13 seasons, clocking in with 13 goals last season.

Season Betting Odds for Ovechkin’s Record-Breaking Goal
2024/25 Season+110
2025/26 Season-140
2026/27 Season+200
2027/28 Season+900
2028/29 Season+1800


With Ovechkin; ‘s recent drop-off in goal production, he still scored 31 goals this past season. This is his 17th straight season with 30 or more goals. If he reaches that mark again in 2024-25, he would need just a dozen goals in the 2025-2026 regular season to accomplish the feat.

Ovechkin is under contract with the Capitals for the next two seasons. He can become an unrestricted free agent after 2026. With Washington possibly being on a rebuild, despite making the NHL playoff standings this year, we suggest taking small shots with the +110 and -140 prices with his next two seasons.

This concludes Ovechkin’s 2025 record pursuit article. Check out more on the best NHL bets today and more over at Point Spreads.
