Out of the top 50 goal scorers in history, I've got:
Gretzky
Lemieux
Robitaille
Ovechkin
Bossy
Nieuwendyk
Hawerchuk

I ignored first seasons with less than half a season. There were lots who had two 40-goal seasons in their 2nd and 3rd full seasons. Others:

Stastny was off by one goal (and was injured for a few games)
Bure had 60 in his 2nd and 3rd and 35 in his first, but only played 65 games, so he almost certainly would have done it.
Eric Lindros
Ziggy Palffy (sort of); he played 33 games in a season prior to his 40 goal ones

There are lots of old-timers, like Roy and Charlie Conacher, that pro-rate to two 40 goal seasons.

Impressive list, with the exception of Ovechkin, all those guys played in the crazy-goal-scoring era.  I mean it was normal for multiple players to have 50+ and 60+ goals in a season which you never see now.

What about era-adjusted 40-goal seasons?

That seems like a lot of work to put together.

It's not that bad.

Hockey-reference
First and second years only, era adjusted >=40 Goals

The only players that show up for both seasons:
Ovechkin - 52, 48 goals at 20, 21 yrs old
Gretzky - 43, 42 goals at 19, 20 yrs old
Bossy - 47, 58 goals at 21, 22 yrs old

All three of them are the only ones that went 3, 4, 5 in a row too.
Ovechkin and Bossy drop off after that, while Gretzky keeps going.

Kovalchuk would be part of this party as well, but missed the cut in his rookie season.

I'm liking this more and more if Auston can make that list.  Holy crap what company to be in  :o
