No matter the record, it's impressive to even be in the same category as Wayne Gretzky. It's another thing to be ahead of 'The Great One'.
Nathan MacKinnon recorded a point – an assist with less than a minute remaining in overtime to help the Avalanche beat the Red Wings – to advance his point streak to 13 games. He now has more consecutive games with a point as an 18 year old than Gretzky did.
Gretzky's point streak spanned 12 games from December 9, 1979 to January 5, 1980. MacKinnon's streak is longer – and he's still going.
