Jaromir Jagr continues to scale.

The ageless, mullet-wearing winger with the Florida Panthers suited up in his 1,653rd career game Thursday night at Joe Louis Arena, passing Mark Recchi for fourth all time.

Gordie Howe, Mark Messier, and Ron Francis are the only players with more.

Jagr sits 114 games behind Howe for the most games played in NHL history. If he hangs around for one more year, and remains healthy and able past the age of 46, Jagr has a chance to finish his career with the most all time.

As for his next rung that he'll take, Jagr requires eights points to surpass Mark Messier for the second-most behind Wayne Gretzky. He entered his 1,653rd game with 1,880 points for his career.
