During that span, Gretzky scored 61 goals and had 92 assists for a total of 153 points (exactly 3 points per game).
“The Great One” holds 40 regular season records,15 playoff records, and five All-Star records to make a grand total of 60 NHL records credited to his name.
Upon his retirement, Gretzky owned 61 records; two of them have since been broken, and he has gained another one.
His then-record 15 regular season overtime assists has been broken three times and is currently held by Mark Messier with 18.
He also held the All-Star assist record with 12, but that has been broken as well and is held by Joe Sakic with 16.
Gretzky finished his career with a 1.921 points per game average. Only Mario Lemieux had a better points per game average at that time.
Lemieux came out of retirement in 2000, and his points per game average has dropped to 1.883 before he retired again in the middle of the 2005–2006 season.
However, one of Gretzky’s more impressive feats was his 51-game point scoring streak from Oct. 5, 1983, to Jan. 28, 1984.
