On this day: Wayne Gretzky Sets Points Record

Wednesday, 15th October 2014 by

On this day 25 years ago Wayne Gretzky became the leading points scorer in NHL history. Not long after he was traded to the LA Kings, he played against his former club, the Edmonton Oilers when he scored his 1851st point, taking the record from his idol Gordie Howe, who was on hand at Northlands Coliseum to lead the celebrations.
