Video: Jaromir Jagr’s “lower-body assist” passes Mark Messier

It didn’t take long for Jaromir Jagr to pass Mark Messier for second all time in points in the NHL, as his third period assist against the Bruins gave him 1,888 career points. But let’s just say it wasn’t the prettiest pass in the world.

If Jagr keeps getting assists like that, it’s going to be very tough for him to play until he’s 50. But I still hope he tries. From pretty goals to what he pulled off tonight, he’s a credit to the game. So congratulations to Jaromir, who I hope receives extra hip padding as a congratulatory gift from the Florida Panthers for his achievement.
