Tampa Bay's Steven Stamkos has joined the NHL's 60-goal club.
He scored at 3:29 of the third period at the last home game of the Winnipeg Jets.
He sent a slap shot past goaltender Ondrej Pavelec's glove on a pass from Martin St. Louis to put Tampa ahead 3-1.
Although they chanted ''No goal Stamkos'' all night every time he had a chance at the puck and booed initially, Winnipeg fans gave him a standing ovation a few seconds after he scored.
Just 19 players have scored 60 goals or more in a single season.
The exclusive group includes players such as Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux and Brett Hull.
Alex Ovechkin is the only player to score 60 since 1996. The Washington Capitals star had 65 goals in the 2007-08 season.
