Gretzky scores 50 in 39

Scoring 50 goals in 50 games is an impressive accomplishment in the National Hockey League. It has only been accomplished five times, all by all-time greats: Maurice “Rocket” Richard, Mike Bossy, Mario Lemieux, Brett Hull, and Wayne Gretzky. In the 1981-82 season, Gretzky scored his 50th goal of the season in his 39th game. No one has ever come close to matching this record.
