Congrats to Jaromir Jagr, second all-time in the NHL in points

Most of them were, of course, scored as a Penguin.

Jaromir Jagr #68...

In case you missed it: former longtime Pittsburgh Penguin Jaromir Jagr assisted on the Florida Panthers’ lone goal in their latest game. It was the 1,888th point of his career, making him second all-time in the NHL in points.

Second. All-time.

It’s been a truly amazing career for the 44-year-old, and the Penguins brought up a pretty good point of their own.

While Jagr has bounced around the NHL some, especially since his return from the KHL, it’s impossible to discount his time as a Penguin. Roughly 57% of those points came with Pittsburgh, after all! And franchise-wise, he’s second only to Mario Lemieux in stats like games played, goals, assists, points, and shots, while even leading the franchise record for game-winning goals with 78.

So here’s to an amazing career that’s not yet over - and here’s especially to remembering where it all began, when the Penguins drafted him fifth overall all the way back in 1990.

What a run he’s still going on. Who saw this coming?
