Alexander Ovechkin made history on Monday night, becoming the 4th fastest player in NHL history to reach 600 career goals.

It took Ovechkin just 990 games to reach the 600 goal mark and just 30 words to express his gratitude towards the people who helped him reach the milestone. Following the Capitals 3-2 win in overtime, Ovechkin took to his Instagram account to share a special thank you message.



We bet that it does feel pretty darn good to feel part of history. Speaking after the game, Patrik Lane shared his thoughts on Ovi's achievement joking that that he was in "a good spot" to see the goal.

Ovi wasn't the only happy camper on Monday either, as a few collectors jumped to eBay following the historic goal to make a quick buck!
