The '500 or more NHL goals' quiz

Washington Capitals captain Alexander Ovechkin has already added a Stanley Cup to his resume. Now, he's chasing a hallowed individual goal. Or should we say goals?

The 34-year-old Ovechkin has 40 goals in 54 games this season, leaving him with 698 for his career. That puts him within 200 goals of Wayne Gretzky's career record of 894. So if Ovie can keep doing what he does best (and there is reason to believe he can), then the NHL will have a new "greatest goal scorer of all time."

Which brings us to today's quiz of the day. Throughout NHL history, a total of 45 players have scored at least 500 goals. So with that in mind, how many of these players can you name in six minutes?

Good luck!

Can you name every NHL player to score 500 or more goals?
