BY foxsports • July 30, 2015

Six members of the Florida Panthers were listed among the greatest players in the NHL by jersey number, according to Allan Muir of Sports Illustrated.

It goes without saying that Jaromir Jagr (No. 68) headlines this list of the Panthers' past-and-present stars. The 43-year-old ranks fifth all-time in the league in goals (722), sixth in assists (1,080), fourth in points (1,802) and 11th in games played (1,550).

Defenseman Brian Campbell (51) and Jussi Jokinen (36) join Jagr on the list of current Florida stars. Campbell has yet to miss a game since joining the team to begin the 2011-12 season while Jokinen recorded eight goals and 36 assists in 2014-15 during his first campaign with the Panthers.

Former stars Joe Nieuwendyk (25), Jose Theodore (60) and Martin Straka (82) also represent Florida on the list. Nieuwendyk played the final two seasons of his Hall-of-Fame career with the Panthers, Theodore guided the club to the postseason in 2011-12 and Straka spent two campaigns in South Florida as well.
