Jagr Passes Yzerman on NHL's All-Time Assist Board

During the Devils 3-2 shooutout loss to the New York Islanders on Tuesday, 42-year-old Jaromir Jagr notched another milestone for his storied career.

Jagr was credited with the secondary assist on Marek Zidlicky's power play goal in the first, and later in the period he added a second helper on Scott Gomez's goal. The assists give Jagr a total of 1,065, which move the Kladno, Czech Republic native past Steve Yzerman into seventh all-time and tops the active list.
