Jaromir Jagr scored his 600th NHL goal this week and continues to set the standard by leading the league in points.

When motivated, this 34-year-old former Hart Trophy winner still exhibits game-breaking qualities. And based on the fine print of his multi-year contract with the New York Rangers, a love of the game isn't Jagr's lone source of motivation.

If Jagr maintains his scoring pace and wins the Art Ross Trophy, he'll trigger an additional year at $11 million, minus the rollback. In fact, if he wins the Art Ross, the Hart or the Conn Smythe, the Rangers are on the hook for the extra year.

However, winning a major award isn't the only means this 9-time all-star has to further cash in.

If this season and next he combines to score 80 or more goals, or 180 or more points and New York wins two playoff rounds over the two year period, an eighth year is added at $8.6 million.
