Jaromir Jagr Is About To Become The NHL's Fifth Greatest Scorer...And Maybe More

Jaromir Jagr Is About To Become The NHL’s Fifth Greatest Scorer…And Maybe More

Jaromir Jagr is on the verge of breaking into the NHL‘s top five goal scorers of all time. As of today’s post, the soon-to-be 43-year old New Jersey Devil (and once Pittsburgh Penguin, Washington Capital, New York Ranger, Philadelphia Flyer, Dallas Star and Boston Bruin) is just one goal behind Phil Esposito.

And since he wants to play “until he’s 50,” Jagr might eventually wind up third – or even higher – all time.

We’ll see.

You can see the top 20 all-time goal scorers in a previous Sports List of the Day post here.

But today, in a video showcase, take a look at the top five in action (and Jagr, too).
