Alex Ovechkin has hit the net for 484th time in his NHL career Thursday against the Dallas Stars at Verizon Center, becoming the top Russian-born scorer in the league.

      “Ovechkin's record-setting goal came against the Stars, just as Fedorov's did on Oct. 25, 2008,” says a news update on NHL.com

      "Without my teammates I would never accomplish that," Ovechkin was quoted as saying.

      Ovechkin has 484 goals in 777 NHL games, one goal more than Fedorov scored in 1,248 NHL games.

      “Since reaching 483 goals on Nov. 7, Ovechkin thought he broke the record twice, but each time the goal was disallowed. He had gone four games without scoring.

      Ovechkin had the only assist on Fedorov's 483rd goal, scored for the Capitals against the Atlanta Thrashers on April 7, 2009,” says Katie Brown from NHL.com.

      Fedorov was known to be a mentor and friend to Ovechkin.

      Now Ovechkin is 16 goals away from becoming the 43rd player to score 500 NHL goals.

      “If Ovechkin scores his 500th goal this season, he will be the fifth-fastest player to do so in NHL history.Wayne Gretzky (575 games), Mario Lemieux (605), Mike Bossy (647) and Brett Hull (693) are the only players to score 500 goals in fewer than 700 games,” says NHL.com.

      You can watch the replay of the goal below.
