Amazingly, Jaromir Jagr is still chugging along in professional hockey. It was announced on Wednesday that the 48-year-old is about to begin his 33rd season in professional hockey and he’ll do so with the Kladno Knights.
The Knights are a team Jagr co-owns, and it was announced that Jagr will make his debut against HC Dukla Jihlava, 284 days after his last appearance. The 24-year NHL veteran played with the team last season as well, scoring 15 goals and 29 points in 38 games. This will be his third season with the club, having last played in the NHL with the Calgary Flames during the 2017-18 season.
Jagr is a five-time Art Ross Trophy winner and ranks third all-time in NHL history in games played at 1,733. He’s one of the most decorated players in the history of the game and he’s looking to add to his hockey legacy in what might be his last-ever season.
Jagr is a Beauty
His stop over in Calgary wasn’t wonderful, but his intentions were good. And, there’s something about Jagr that you have to admire. Not only is he one of the most decorated hockey players in the world, there’s something about his love for the game, his desire to keep playing it and his involvement behind the scenes to do so that make him an absolute legend.
From the traveling Jagr’s to his unmistakable hair style, to the way he plays the game. He’s a beauty in more ways than one.
Adam Proteau said on Twitter Wednesday, “I’d love Jagr to sign a one-game contract with every NHL team this season. One game, one run-through on the power play, then on to the next team. Send out a singular talent in a singular way.” We kind of agree that this would be the best thing ever.
