The 44-year-old will take to the ice tonight with his Florida Panthers when they take on the Colorado Avalanche, a rematch of the 1996 Stanley Cup Final.
Jagr sits at 1849 points in his career, one shy of Detroit Red Wings legend Gordie Howe.
NHL gave Jagr that assist from the other night that you all were on top of. Now one point behind Howe. #flapanthers
