NEWARK, N.J. -- New Jersey Devils forward Jaromir Jagr moved into ninth place on the NHL's all-time assists list Tuesday against the Detroit Red Wings at Prudential Center.

Jagr picked up the 1,041st of his career on Travis Zajac's goal at 6:30 of the third period, moving him past Marcel Dionne. He is eight assists behind Gordie Howe (1,049) for eighth on the all-time list. Zajac's goal gave the Devils a 3-2 lead.

Jagr, who turned 42 on Feb. 15, has 700 goals and 1,741 points in 1,453 career games spanning 19-plus NHL seasons. He scored Saturday against the New York Islanders to become the seventh player in NHL history to reach the 700-goal mark. Mike Gartner (708) is sixth on the all-time list.

Jagr passed former Pittsburgh Penguins teammate Mario Lemieux on the all-time scoring list with an assist for his 1,724th point in a 2-1 victory against the Florida Panthers on Jan. 11. Steve Yzerman is sixth with 1,755 points.
