Former Capital Jaromir Jagr just hit a milestone against the Capitals. The 44-year-old Jagr became the third player of all time to score 750 career goals. The tally, Jagr’s second career goal on Braden Holtby, came after the Czech rifled a one-timer past the 2016 Vezina Trophy winner.
Yup, he’s still got it.
The only players who have more goals than Jagr are Wayne Gretzky (894) and Gordie Howe (801). Despite being 13 years younger, Alex Ovechkin is already within striking distance of Jagr, trailing the future Hall of Famer by 223 goals.
