8. Youngest to 200 Wins: 26 years 1 month

Martin Brodeur was the youngest goalie to 200, 300, 400, 500 and 600 wins. However, we always remember our first. Patrick Roy beat Brodeur to 50 and 100 wins, but Brodeur lapped him on the rest of the list.

On April 14th, 1999, Brodeur recorded his 200th win. He only allowed one goal against the Buffalo Sabres with Domick Hasek sitting on the bench. He was 26 years and one month old.

This record could theoretically be broken one day. However, it would be really hard. Andrei Vasilevskiy plays for one of the best organizations in the league in the Tampa Bay Lightning, and has two years until he turns 26, but he hasn’t even broken 100 wins. He started his career early, was given a great team to stand behind, yet he’s nowhere near breaking the record.

This shows that this wasn’t just any old record. This is one that an elite goaltender will need to come along to beat.
