Jagr gets four points, including goal 666

Jan 19, 2013, 11:41 PM EST

One of the best things about the season being saved is that we get to watch aging greats like Jaromir Jagr and Teemu Selanne add to their already impressive careers.

40-year-old Jagr made his Dallas Stars debut on Saturday and led the team to a 4-3 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes.

Jagr netted his 666th career goal — and the first of the game — at 18:36 of the first period. You can watch him reach that milestone below:

That was just the start of what proved to be a great contest for him. He added another goal in the second period and also registered two assists for Dallas. In the process he gave Stars fans a reason to forget about the ongoing contract drama with Jamie Benn — at least for one night.

With 667 goals, Jagr is now just one away from Luc Robitaille and ninth place on the NHL’s career goals list.

At the same time, Selanne entered the season with 663 career goals and will likely chase Jagr to see which one of them will end up with more goals by the time they hang up their skates.
