Jaromir Jagr was a Dallas Star for all of 34 games, but when Jagr and the New Jersey Devils visited the Lone Star State, the Stars made sure remind fans of Jagr’s time in Dallas. With yet another list, the Stars scoreboard operators ran down some of Jagr’s greatest achievements while a member of the team, and again, just like when pointing to things to do in Winnipeg, the list got a bit thin near the bottom. We kind of want to know about this missing key, though:

Though the then-40-year-old’s tenure as a Star wasn’t terrible – he tallied 14 goals and 26 points during the stint – it wasn’t very memorable. Blame it on a Stars team that just wasn’t very good or chalk it up to the fact that Jagr ended his season in Boston as a member of the Bruins battling for the Stanley Cup, whichever way you want to look at it, in a decade hockey fans will look back at Jagr in a Stars jersey and likely say, “Oh, right, he played there. I forgot about that.” In a nice bit of coincidence, however, after the Stars jibed Jagr’s achievements in Dallas, the 42-year-old went out and registered an assist to vault him into a tie for seventh all-time in career assists. On Monday, Jagr added another pair, good for sole possession of the seventh spot, two ahead of
