When Jaromir Jagr finally scored Monday night (right), the Flyers' season was 438 minutes and one second old. That is, by far, the longest into any of his teams' seasons that it took the future Hall of Famer to light his first light.
Below are the first goals of each of his 18 seasons.
Noteworthy: Before Monday, the longest Jagr had gone into a season without a tally was his most recent NHL campaign (2007-08) when it took him nearly 300 minutes to score for the Rangers ... His earliest goal came a year before that, when it took him all of 29 seconds to get on the board ... Seven times he has scored in his team's first game, including five in a row from 2001 to 2006 (three years with the Capitals, the strike year, and his first two with the Rangers) ... In four of those seven games, he scored in the first period of the season.
