WAYNE GRETZKY equalled Gordie Howe's NHL goalscoring record of 801 by netting twice in San Jose on Sunday as the Los Angeles Kings drew 6-6 with the San Jose Sharks.

The 33-year-old Kings centre tied the record with 49 seconds left in normal time. It was Gretzky's 36th goal of the season.

Gretzky already holds the NHL points-scoring record. His total now stands at 2,447; he is the only player in history with more than 2,000 points.
