The ageless Jaromir Jagr reached another monumental milestone Saturday, surpassing Brett Hull for the No. 3 spot on the NHL's all-time list with 742 career goals, per SportsCenter.

The 44-year-old Florida Panthers forward tied the mark with No. 741 in the second period of Saturday's game against the Winnipeg Jets, then scored again with 13:37 remaining in the third period to take sole possession of third place overall. 

Here is a look at Jagr’s first goal Saturday, as shown by the NHL:

And here is his second, courtesy of the NHL:

Jagr is now 59 goals shy of second-place Gordie Howe, who tallied 801 goals in his 26-year career. Jagr has 20 goals this season and would probably need another two full years to catch Howe, while many believe that all-time leader Wayne Gretzky’s mark of 894 is unbreakable.

On Monday, Jagr celebrated his birthday and became the fifth skater in NHL history to play at 44 years old, per Adam Gretz of CBS Sports.com.

The 1990 draft pick is also the first player to reach 43 points in a season at 43-plus years old, per Gretz, and there are still 23 games left this year. 

Pierre LeBrun of ESPN noted what makes Jagr so good in his eyes:

What makes Jagr's run more remarkable is the fact that he essentially lost five full seasons to lockouts—half-seasons in 1994-95 and 2012-13 and the full 2004-05 campaign—and his three-year stint in the Kontinental Hockey League.

Jagr, who leads the Panthers in points, has more left in the tank and may squeeze out a few more years—and milestones—before hanging up his gloves.
