Capitals star Alexander Ovechkin nets 600th career National Hockey League goal

Ovechkin celebrated the milestone with his shot past Connor Hellebuyck in the second period of Monday's game against the Winnipeg Jets.

After the game, Kuzy had the quote of the night when asked for his reaction of Alex Ovechkin's 600th career goal. The Caps captain duly scored a brace to successfully fill in the gap in his 990th regular-season game.

"Now it's 600, honestly it's a pretty incredible and cool feeling".

Eagles release TE Brent Celek, their longest-tenured player
Celek, the Eagles' longest-tenured player to that point, was set to cost $5 million against the Eagles' salary cap for 2018. Philly drafted him in the fifth round in 2007 and spent his entire 11-year National Football League career with the team.

"That's huge. When you look at those numbers, you don't even think it's 599, 600", Kuznetsov said. The Russian winger became the 20th player and fourth-fastest in NHL history to 600 goals and is on pace to lead the league in goals for the seventh time. My mom, my parents watched the game at home, and they are happy. "All my family is happy and that is the most important thing".

Nicknamed "Alexander the Great", Ovechkin is now also the fourth player to clear the mark of 600 goals in less than 1,000 National Hockey League games, after Wayne Gretzky (in 718 games), Mario Lemieux (719 games) and Brett Hull (900 games).
