Patrik Laine's ultra-quick release netted him a milestone Tuesday night.

The Winnipeg Jets scorer rifled home a one-timer on a two-man advantage for his 50th career goal in his 101st NHL game.

Laine became the third-fastest player to reach the 50-goal plateau in the post-lockout era, joining Alex Ovechkin and Auston Matthews, according to Sportsnet.

Ovechkin needed only 78 games to hit the mark before finishing with 52 goals in his 2005-06 rookie season. Matthews potted his 50th career marker in November on a penalty shot in his 96th game.
