The point came on an assist during Pittsburgh's home game against the Winnipeg Jets.
The only other player to reach 1,000 career points after debuting in the wake of the 2004-05 lockout is Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin. Crosby fought the puck away from a Jets' player before swinging it over to Chris Kunitz for the goal.
Sidney Crosby has another remarkable feat to add to his growing list of prestigious career accomplishments. "Hopefully, we can make a run here".
Crosby now owns 30 goals and 32 assists in 50 games this season. The goal gave the Penguins a 2-0 lead. "It has been insane because you have to adjust and speed is so much faster at this level, so it has taken a little bit, but I feel better now", said the 22-year-old Guentzel, who has played alongside Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Phil Kessel among others during his 18 games with Pittsburgh. He has scored 368 goals in 12 seasons.
