The Czech Republic beat Austria 4-0 on Friday to move into third place in Group A at the World Championships in Prague. It was nearly 5-0 had Jaromir Jagr’s dazzling dangliciousiness resulted in a goal.

(Don’t mind the techno soundtrack.)

Let's watch it over and over again in GIF form, via Reddit:

Let’s remind you that the man is 43 years old. But he doesn't care. He's been dishing out hits and coming to the aid of teammates the entire tournament.

Jagr first participated in the Worlds in 1990 with Czechoslovakia, winning a bronze medal. He had announced his retirement from national team duty last year, but was convinced to participate this month since the Florida Panthers missed the playoffs. 

We look forward to Jagr's perpetual one-year NHL deals, allowing us to watch him play deep into his 50s because, well, Jagr Forever.
