It had previously been held by Gretzky, who scored twice in nine seconds back on February 18, 1981.

“That is so cool, good for him, he’s a great kid. Records are so made to be broken, it’s good for the game,” Gretzky told Pierre LeBrun of

“If Kevin Lowe would have got me the puck quicker it would have been 7 seconds!”
