Jaromir Jagr keeps getting it done. Because of that, he’s on pace to speed up various all-time ranks and lock down milestone after milestone.
He recently hit his 1,600th game played, but if that doesn’t do it for you, check out goal 739 from No. 68 in the video above.
Whether you deem it a “beer league” goal like Sportsnet does or not, it’s impressive that he’s still such a reliable scorer for the Florida Panthers, who throttled the Buffalo Sabres last night (even if Evander Kanewon three fights).
That tally leaves Jagr two goals behind Brett Hull for third all-time in goals at 741.
The seemingly ageless one would have a fitting person to chase if he then eyes the second all-time goalscorer, as Gordie Howe defied age himself in racking up 801.
PHT Morning Skate: It’s not like they robbed a bank
PHT’s Morning Skate takes a look around the world of hockey to see what’s happening and what we’ll be talking about around the NHL world and beyond.
Calgary Flames head coach Bob Hartley seems pretty chill about healthy-scratching Sean Monahan, Johnny Gaudreau and Lance Bouma. That goes for Monahan and Gaudreau in particular, noting that they’re “great kids.”
Besides … it’s not like they robbed a bank. (NHL.com)
This dominant win is a heck of a way for the Kings to begin an imposing seven-game road trip, which continues against the New York Islanders on Thursday. The Bruins probably want to burn the tape on this one themselves, as they’re about to head on a six-game road trip.
Per @EliasSports: @LAKings had 9 different skaters score in a game for 5th time in franchise history. Last: Jan. 21, 1987 vs. PIT (10-5 W).
