Panthers teammate makes joke about letting him score back in the day in video tribute to star
The Florida Panthers goalie had a funny quip during Jagr’s tribute video, played on Thursday after Jagr passed Mark Messier for second on the NHL’s career points list.
“Hey Jags I just wanted to congratulate you on being second all-time in points. I know you couldn’t have gotten there without all those years I let you score on me back in the day,” Luongo said.
The tribute that featured Messier and Wayne Gretzky, the NHL’s all-time points leader, as well as many Panthers teammates.
Of all the sincere wishes, Luongo’s may have gotten the biggest laugh.
