15 unforgettable moments in winter sports


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.
