Jaromir Jagr becomes 7th player in NHL history to score 700 goals (Video)

Prior to Saturday, only six players in NHL history had scored 700 or more career goals. During the New Jersey Devils’ 6-1 rout of the New York Islanders the club gained another member.

In the second period, Jaromir Jagr put the puck in the back of the net for the 19th time this season, taking his career tally to 700.

Goals against the Islanders are certainly nothing new for Jagr. Saturday’s milestone was No. 61, the most he’s scored against any team in his 20-year career.

Immediately ahead of Jaromir Jagr on the league’s all-time list is Mike Gartner, who has 708. The top five spots are occupied by Wayne Gretzky (894), Gordie Howe (801), Brett Hull (741), Marcel Dionne (731), and Phil Esposito (717).
