NEW YORK (AP) - Jaromir Jagr scored his 600th NHL goal Sunday night, making the New York Rangers captain the 16th player to reach the milestone.

Jagr beat Tampa Bay goalie Johan Holmqvist with a wrist shot just 1:43 into the game after teammate Michael Nylander tipped Karel Rachunek's slap shot to him in front of the net. It was Jagr's ninth goal of the season and fourth in four games.

Jagr is the second Rangers forward to reach 600 goals this season. Brendan Shanahan did it in his debut for New York on Oct. 5 against Washington.

Even at his age, Jagr is still definitely one of the best players in the NHL, and it's good to see that Tom Renney has been able to get him back to being the hard-working player he used to be.

A good choice for Captain in New York. Unless he goes into a major slump or injury over the rest of his career, he should reach 700 in maybe 3-4 more seasons.
