On March 23, 1994, Wayne Gretzky scored his record breaking 802nd career NHL goal. Gretzky surpassed his childhood hero Gordie Howe, whose record stood for almost 15 years.
In the second period of a game against the Vancouver Canucks, Gretzky received a cross-ice feed from Marty McSorley and buried it into a yawning cage for the record breaking goal. “The Great One” would record an additional 92 goals in his career, finishing with a total of 894 regular season goals. Many consider this record to be untouchable.
