October 27, 1997

NEW YORK (AP) _ Wayne Gretzky of the New York Rangers became the only player in NHL history to register as many assists as any other NHL player has points when he set up a goal in Sunday night’s game against the Anaheim Mighty Ducks.

Gretzky assisted on a goal by Niklas Sundstrom at 12:14 of the second period for his 1,850th career assist, equalling the overall point total of Hall-of-Famer Gordie Howe.
