WPG@FLA: Jagr scores twice to move ahead of Hull

2/20/16: Jaromir Jagr knocks in his 471st and 472nd career goal against the Jets to move past Brett Hull to third on the all-time list

  • 01:12 •

Florida Panthers forward Jaromir Jagr scored twice Saturday to reach 742 NHL goals and pass Brett Hull for third place on the League's all-time list.

Jagr scored at 4:53 of the second period and at 6:23 of the third against the Winnipeg Jets at BB&T Center.

"You know what, I don't even think about it," Jagr said this week. "We just have to make sure we play good hockey and I play good hockey. If we're going to play good, it's just a matter of time before I score. I just have to make sure we play good."

Hull passed Marcel Dionne for third on the list on Dec. 8, 2003; Dionne had been third since Dec. 21, 1991, when he was passed for second by Wayne Gretzky.

"It's obviously not a record, but you do things well and there are people with extraordinary talent that are going to pass you one day," Hull said last month. "I would think at this point with the way the game is played, it'll be Jagr and [Alex Ovechkin], and I'll probably end up fifth. It's a pretty good group of guys to be lumped with though."

Jagr has 20 goals in 56 games this season. The 44-year-old made his NHL debut on Oct. 5, 1990 and has played 1,606 games with the Pittsburgh Penguins, Washington Capitals, New York Rangers, Philadelphia Flyers, Dallas Stars, Boston Bruins, New Jersey Devils and Panthers.

Gretzky's 894 goals are most in NHL history, 93 more than Gordie Howe.

Jagr is fourth with 1,845 points, behind Howe (1,850), Mark Messier (1,887) and Gretzky (2,857).

Hull scored his 741 goals in 1,269 games with the Blues, Stars, Detroit Red Wings, Calgary Flames and Phoenix Coyotes. He last played in the 2005-06 season.

Ovechkin, of the Capitals, had 512 goals prior to playing Saturday, third among active NHL players and 38th all-time; Jarome Iginla of the Colorado Avalanche had 606, 18th all-time.

Jagr missed three NHL seasons playing in the Kontinental Hockey League from 2008-11.
