Anytime you find your name even remotely close to the Great One’s in the record books, it’s a big deal.

Los Angeles Kings captain Anze Kopitar opened the scoring Tuesday night in his team’s game against Buffalo early in the first period. The third goal of the season for Kopitar, it also snapped a 16-game goalless drought the Kings superstar was mired in.
But, as if that wasn’t enough to get Kopitar and the Kings excited, the goal also marked the captain’s 264th career goal tying him with… yup, you guessed it, Wayne Gretzky for sixth on the LA Kings’ all-time goals list.
Well done, Kopi!
