(Reuters) - Jaromir Jagr continued his climb up the record books as he scored twice on Saturday to move into third place all-time on the NHL’s career goals scored list.

The 44-year-old Czech tied Brett Hull’s 741 goals in the second period then delivered his 742nd in the third when he tallied a loose puck in front of the net. His scores helped the Florida Panthers take a 3-1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets.

Playing in the 22nd season of his decorated career, Jagr now has 20 goals on the season and trails only Gordie Howe (801) and Wayne Gretzky (894) on the all-time list.
