Jaromir Jagr has amazed hockey fans around the world throughout his NHL career, but perhaps none more than his high-scoring peers, the ones who have seen the ageless right wing closer than anyone else. 

Jagr, who celebrated his 44th birthday Monday, is the third-leading goal-scorer in NHL history after getting Nos. 741 and 742 on Saturday to pass Brett Hull. It's a position Jagr is not likely to yield anytime soon.

Jaromir Jagr of the Florida Panthers continues to climb up the ranks of the NHL's top all-time goal-scorers. Jagr moved into third place on the all-time list Saturday, when he scored his 742nd regular-season goal, against the Winnipeg Jets. The Panthers are his eighth NHL team.

SUNRISE, Fla. -- Jaromir Jagr had two goals to move past Brett Hull into third place on the NHL's all-time list when the Florida Panthers defeated the Winnipeg Jets 3-1 at BB&T Center on Saturday.

Jagr tied Hull with his 741st goal in the second period to tie the game 1-1 and scored his 742nd at 13:37 of the third period to give Florida a 3-1 lead.

"It's great, but I don't really think about it, to be honest with you," Jagr said. "I don't feel like I played really well for a few games, so I wanted to make sure I play a little bit better today. I had a little more jump, so it was pretty good."
