Don't be deceived by the No. 68 he wears on his jersey.

New Jersey Devils forward Jaromir Jagr moved to No. 10 on the all-time assists list, passing legend and former Pittsburgh Penguins teammate Mario Lemieux with a pair of helpers against the New Jersey Devils on Sunday at Yankee Stadium. 

The 41-year-old veteran raised his assist total to 1,035, setting up teammate Patrik Elias both times with some sweet stickhandling. 

He recently passed Hall of Famer Mark Messier for seventh on the all-time goals list (he now has 697 to Messier's 694).

Watch the video above to see how he did it. How many more milestones will Jagr reach?
