Jaromir Jagr had two assists Friday to pass Gordie Howe with his 269th NHL point after turning 40, most in history.

"I'm going to pass him for the most points after 50," Jagr said. "That's what I'm looking for."

Jagr, who turned 45 on Feb. 15, assisted on goals by Jonathan Huberdeau and Aleksander Barkov in a 4-3 win against the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden.

Jagr has 1,907 NHL points, second behind Wayne Gretzky (2,857). Howe played until he was 42 then had 41 points in one season as a 51-year-old to finish with 1,850, fourth behind Mark Messier (1,887).

"It's a big honor, no question about it," Jagr said. "It's no accident they call him Mr. Hockey, so it's a big honor to me."
