Jagr scores goal 695, passing Messier for seventh all-time


It seems like Jaromir Jagr is moving up in the all-time scoring ranks every week or so.

That might be an exaggeration, but he achieved another impressive milestone by scoring a goal against the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday, as the 41-year-old winger notched the 695th tally of his career. With that, he now ranks seventh all-time in goal-scoring ahead of Mark Messier.

It took the New Jersey Devils forward a while to break his tie with Messier, as Jagr broke a 10-game goal-scoring drought tonight.

That’s not to say that Jagr hasn’t been producing, however, as he took sole possession at 7th all-time in overall points on Jan. 11.

So, at worst, No. 68 will be seventh all-time in those two major categories thanks to what he’s accomplished this past week. Naturally, the question is: how much higher can he climb? Here are the goal-scorers in front of him:

1. Wayne Gretzky - 894 goals
2. Gordie Howe - 801
3. Brett Hull - 741
4. Marcel Dionne - 731
5. Phil Esposito - 717
6. Mike Gartner - 708
7. Jagr - 695

Gretzky here he comes?
