Despite being the NHL’s oldest player at 44 years old, Florida Panthers forward Jaromir Jagr understands that kids these days are all about the selfie game.

While warming up before Monday night’s game against the Maple Leafs, the All-Star made sure to secure one fan’s Instagram some major likes.

The hockey legend did kinda have some things to do, so he was on the move quick, but fan was able to get one precious shot with the forward.

The fan, who was repping a Penguins jersey at the Air Canada Centre, even got some television air time, too.

Despite fumbling the perfect shot, the guy gets some credit for not using a selfie stick, something we’re pretty sure Jagr doesn’t own, either.
