Jaromir Jagr reaches number 5 on all-time NHL goal scoring list

Forward Jaromir Jagr of the Florida Panthers moved into fifth place on the all-time NHL goal scoring list on March 19 when he found the back of the net in a game against the Detroit Red Wings at home at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Florida. The goal was the 718th of his illustrious career and it saw him leapfrog over Phil Esposito, who had 717. Jagr scored the first goal of the game at the 10:55 mark of the second period when he beat goaltender Petr Mrazek with a wrist shot fired from the left faceoff circle.

It was the 13th goal of the season for the native of the Czech Republic and his second with the Panthers since being traded there by the New Jersey Devils back on February 26th. Jagr is now 13 goals back of Marcel Dionne for the fourth-most goals in NHL history as Dionne retired with 731 under his belt. There’s no doubt the 43-year-old Jagr would be higher up the list if he didn’t leave the NHL for three years a few seasons ago.
