Jagr ties Lemieux on all-time assists list

Jaromir Jagr does it in style as he puts himself in hallowed company with a pair of assists Friday night.

He leads the New Jersey Devils in scoring with 42 points, he’s top-30 overall in the NHL and he just tied Mario Lemieux for 10th all-time in assists with 1,033.

Oh yeah, and he’ll turn 42 years old Feb. 15.
