Jágr now joint sixth highest scorer in NHL

The Czech ice hockey player Jaromír Jágr is now joint sixth all-time highest scorer in the history of the NHL after finding the net for his club New Jersey Devils in a 2:4 defeat to Boston Bruins on Monday. Jágr, who is 42, now has 708 goals, the same number as Mike Gartner. The Kladno-born right wing has achieved that tally despite leaving the NHL to play for Omsk in the Russian-centred Kontinental Hockey League between 2008 and 2011.
