It is clear how many fans are waiting to see whether Ovechkin will surpass the great one Wayne Gretzky's record, we finally have clarity on the time he has left in the NHL in a recent interview with a Russian journalist, translated by sports express, and it has nothing to do with the record or Gretzky himself.

Ovechkin gives timeline on when he will retire




In the interview Ovechkin was asked if he will retire when his contract expires which would be at the end of the 25-26 NHL season. He will be almost 40 years old by that time.


He replied the following:
«I think, yes,» Ovechkin said as translated via Google Translate.

This would mean that if Ovechkin stays true to his word, he has 2 more years left after this year to beat Gretzky's record. He is 58 goals away and has 14 goals this season.

It is still very possible, but Ovechkin must bounce back next year.
