One thousand is quite a number.

But in the NHL, when it comes to points scored … it’s beyond outstanding.

Evgeni Malkin reached that elite goal Tuesday night in Pittsburgh, scoring his 1,000th point — something only 87 other players in the history of the league have done.

Not that Malkin hasn’t already done some amazing things. In his 13 seasons, he’s picked up three Stanley Cups, two Art Ross Trophies, a Hart Trophy, a Calder Trophy, a Ted Lindsay Award and a Conn Smythe Trophy. Oh, and there’s the seven-time NHL All-Star appearances, three First All-Star Team picks and four Penguins team MVP titles.

The Penguins are celebrating his accomplishment in an interactive webpage, and through a series video posts from players past and present.

Malkin ranks 5th among active NHL players when it comes to points.

And when it comes to all-time players …

The team is encouraging fans to share their feelings through the hashtag #Ma1Kin.
