Jonathan Huberdeau helped move Jaromir Jagr into fourth all-time on the NHL goal scorning list yesterday.
Huberdeau assisted on Jagr’s 732nd career goal, which moves him past Marcel Dionne on the all-time list. As theScore notes, “he's only nine goals shy of Brett Hull for third on the list.”
Huberdeau has four goals and 17 assists in 34 games this season for a Panthers team that only has a +13 goal differential.
Gerard Gallant's Panthers have an 18-12-4 record for 40 points. They currently lead the NHL’s Eastern Conference wildcard standings.
