Selanne, Jagr Set to Face Each Other Tonight
Future Hall-of-Famers Teemu Selanne and Jaromir Jagr are set to face each other tonight as the Ducks host New Jersey. Between the two players, they have a combined 1,366 goals and rank 10th (Jagr, 688) and 11th (Selanne, 678) on the NHL\u2019s all-time goals list.
Future Hall-of-Famers Teemu Selanne and Jaromir Jagr are set to face each other tonight as the Ducks host New Jersey. Between the two players, they have a combined 1,366 goals and rank 10th (Jagr, 688) and 11th (Selanne, 678) on the NHL’s all-time goals list.

This will mark the first time in over 10 years that two NHL players with 675-or-more goals faced each other in a contest. The last occurrence was when Detroit’s Brett Hull (717 goals) faced the New York Rangers’ Mark Messier (678 goals) on Oct. 25, 2003 at Madison Square Garden. Messier scored his 679th goal in that game.

Additionally, Selanne and Jagr’s combined NHL goal total of 1,366 is the most between two players facing each other since Oct. 6, 2005 when Luc Robitaille (654) faced Brett Hull (741) in a Coyotes @ Kings contest (1,395 total goals). Robitaille scored his 655th goal in that game.

Selanne (43) and Jagr (41) are the two oldest active players in the NHL.
