The Bruins’ Jaromir Jagr, still going strong at 41, joined an exclusive club recently, becoming just the 12th player in NHL history with 1,000 assists.
Jagr’s legacy as one of the all-time great offensive forces is clear in that he’s also one of just nine players ever to record as many as 500 goals and 1,000 helpers.
