Jaromir Jagr bested Gordie Howe, and now he wants to do it again.

The Florida Panthers forward joked that he had another record in his sights after passing "Mr. Hockey" on Friday night for the most points in NHL history after turning 40 with a pair of helpers in a win over the New York Rangers.

"I'm going to pass him for most points after 50," Jagr quipped postgame, according to Harvey Fialkov of the Sun Sentinel.

Jagr collected his 268th and 269th points in 378 games since becoming a quadragenarian, padding his career total of 1,907 points in 1,699 contests.

Injuries to Roberto Luongo and Aaron Ekblad have put a dent in the Panthers' playoff hopes, but the 45-year-old Jagr - who once said he'd like to play until he's 50 - continues to defy Father Time in his 23rd NHL season.
