After hitting countless milestones with the Florida Panthers, F Jaromir Jagr has proven that age is only a number for him. Take a brief look at the active leader in games played (1,550), goals (722), assists (1,080) and points (1,802) by the numbers.
43 – At the age of 43, Jagr is the NHL’s oldest active player, but he certainly doesn’t play like it. Recording 18 points (6-12—18) in just 20 games with Florida last season, Jagr has shown no signs of slowing down. Shortly after the season ended, Jagr joined Team Czech Republic at the 2015 World Championship in his home country. In front of the crowds in Prague and Ostrava, Jagr recorded nine points (6-3—9) in 10 games to be named the Tournament MVP.
22 – Jagr is entering the 22nd NHL season of his career. Over the past 21 seasons, Jagr has played for eight NHL teams: the Pittsburgh Penguins, Washington Capitals, New York Rangers, Philadelphia Flyers, Dallas Stars, Boston Bruins, New Jersey Devils and Florida Panthers.
722 – The Kladno, Czech Republic native has recorded 722 goals in his NHL career, ranking fifth all-time in goals. Jagr ranks only nine goals behind Marcel Dionne (731) for fourth all-time and 19 goals behind Brett Hull for third all-time.
48 – Jagr’s 1,802 points rank him fourth all-time. The player ahead of him in the all-time rankings? “Mr. Hockey” Gordie Howe. With 48 points separating Jagr from Howe, the ageless wonder will look to surpass the living legend at the number three spot this season. Considering Jagr finished the 2014-15 season with 47 points, as well as posting a 67-point campaign in 2013-14, we may very well see Jagr climb into third all-time by the end of the season.
13 – In 13 home games with the Panthers last season, Jagr recorded 13 points (4-9—13). Over the 13-game span, Jagr recorded six multi-point efforts.
129 – The reigning king of the game-clinching goal, Jagr ranks first in the history of the NHL in game-winners. He continues to run away with the record, adding five more to the total this season, two of which he scored during his stretch with the Panthers. Jagr has a 11-game-winning-goal differential between himself and second all-time Phil Esposito (118), while there’s a 35-game-winning-goal gap between Jagr and the closest active NHLer, Jarome Iginla (94).
