Jaromir Jagr has the second-most points of anyone in NHL history.
The 44-year-old passed Mark Messier on the all-time list with an assist against the Boston Bruins.
Play was stopped and Jagr was given a gold stick for his achievement.
“I thought I was going to score a goal or make a beautiful assist, but it hit my ass,” said Jagr during the ceremony. “I thought it was going to be a little bit prettier but I appreciate everything.”
Jagr now has 1,888 points in his 23-season career.
Only Wayne Gretzky (2,857) has more.
In a video, Gretzky offered congratulations. “You play the game the right way,” he told Jagr.
