"A Christmas Carol" is first published, the NHL plays its first games, Apollo 17 splashes down, and the U.S. House impeaches President Bill Clinton, all on this day.
1984: Wayne Gretzky, 23, of the Edmonton Oilers, becomes the 18th, and youngest, player in NHL history to score more than 1,000 points. Gretzky, who scored the point on an assist in a 7-3 win over the Los Angeles Kings, reached the mark in just his 424th regular-season game, the fewest by any player in NHL history.
