Jaromir Jagr stuffed the stat sheet Thursday against Detroit, racking up a power-play goal, two assists, a plus-1 rating and six penalty minutes in a 6-3 victory.
With four points in two games coming out of the All-Star break, Jagr's turned the page on his pre-break struggles in a big way. He may be the oldest player in the league, but Jagr still has incredible hockey sense, as he showed by putting himself in perfect position to receive Vincent Trocheck's pass in an open area for a beautiful shot that beat Jimmy Howard for his 16th goal of the year. He can be a bit of a hit-or-miss fantasy option, making Jagr a risky roll in daily formats, but in season-long leagues, the points just keep adding up.
Obviously, when a top-line winger has one point in six games it's cause for concern, but what is perhaps more alarming is the fact that Jagr has put just three shots on goal in this same span of time. It looks as though Jagr's age is beginning to catch up with him, though the change of pace offered by the All-Star Weekend could give him a chance to refresh his legs.
Jaromir Jagr scored twice in Sunday's win over the Wild.
Jagr provided the only two tallies for the Florida Panthers , lighting the lamp just 27 seconds into the game and then notching the game-winner midway through the third period. The 43-year-old continues to be productive and has now racked up six points over the last six contests.
Jaromir Jagr scored a power-play goal and had an assist in Sunday's win over Vancouver.
With the goal, Jagr moved into fourth place on the all-time NHL scoring list . The 43-year-old now has 10 goals and 24 points in 31 games on the season and continues to be a force on the Florida Panthers top line. The veteran has two goals and six points in his last seven games for a Florida team that has won four straight games, so make sure he's in your lineup every game.
Jaromir Jagr (illness) will return to the lineup Thursday against the Devils, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.
Jagr was expected to play Tuesday despite missing Monday's practice due to illness, but ended up missing the game as well. It appears a little more rest did the trick, and he'll be good to go heading into Thursday's matchup with the Devils.
