Patrik Laine made NHL history on Thursday.

Picking up an assist against the Chicago Blackhawks, the Winnipeg Jets superstar extended his point streak to 14 games - the longest ever by a teenager.

Laine has recorded 16 goals and 24 points over the stretch. Just how long can Laine extend the streak? He doesn't turn to 20 until April 19, after the Jets play the final 11 games of their regular-season schedule.

The 19-year-old leads the Jets with 41 goals and sits second in team scoring with 66 points.

Prior to Thursday, the streak was held by Colorado Avalanche center Nathan MacKinnon, who during the 2013-14 campaign netted 18 points across 13 contests.
