Jaromir Jagr moves into top 10 on NHL goal scoring list
Jaromir Jagr entered the top 10 on the NHL's goal-scoring list on Wednesday night with an overtime winner in Edmonton for the Dallas Stars.
Jaromir Jagr scored the game-winning goal in overtime for the Dallas Stars on Wednesday night in their 3-2 win over the Edmonton Oilers. It was the 668th goal of Jagr's incredible career, and it moved him into a tie for 10th place on the NHL's career goal list with Luc Robitaille.
Next up on the list is Mario Lemieux, his former teammate in Pittsburgh, at 690 goals (those guys were unstoppable together).
It's amazing to think about where Jagr would be (and where he would end up) on the NHL's all-time scoring lists had he not spent three years in Russia and lost parts of two seasons (1994-95 and 2012-13) plus a full season (2004-05) to lockouts. That's basically five full seasons worth of games. It wouldn't be out of the question to think that, assuming he stayed reasonably healthy, he would already be in the top three in both goals and total points.
Jagr's goal on Wednesday was also the 115th game-winning goal in his career, which puts him just three behind Phil Esposito for the all-time lead.
