Jaromir Jagr scores 742nd goal to pass Brett Hull for third-most in NHL history

Only two to go.

Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

In the annals of NHL history, only Wayne Gretzky and Gordie Howe have scored more goals than Jaromir Jagr.

The 44-year-old Florida Panthers wonder made that official Saturday night with two goals in a 3-1 win over the Winnipeg Jets. It was perhaps one of the best games of the season for Jagr, who tied and passed Brett Hull for third place on the same night.

He got 741 to tie Hull in the first period off a nifty deflection.

And, in true Jagr fashion, he sealed the win for the Panthers with a late goal in the third period to leave Hull behind in the dust.

Jagr's agelessness is remarkable; he now has 20 goals and 43 points in 56 games this season. For the record, Gordie Howe sits at 801 goals (attainable for Jagr, perhaps) and Wayne Gretzky's untouchable record sits at 894.
