NHL: Washington Capitals at Florida Panthers Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

9 - Number of players on the current Capitals roster who were not yet born when Jaromir Jagr played his first NHL game (against the Caps) on October 5, 1990.

That group of youths includes Nate Schmidt, Dmitry Orlov, Philipp Grubauer, Brett Connolly, Evgeny Kuznetsov, Tom Wilson, Zachary Sanford, Andre Burakovsky and Marcus Johansson... who just missed it, making his world debut the day after Jagr’s NHL debut.
