Hockey legend Jaromir Jagr makes big announcement on Instagram
BY COOPER GODIN SEPTEMBER 16, 2023 (12:14)
Jagr went on to play in 26 games last season, putting up 14 points (five goals, nine assists), 16 penalty minutes and had an even-rating. But if you thought the 51-year-old was going to hang up the skates, think again.
In a post on his Instagram account on Saturday, Jagr announced that he will be suiting up for Kladno for the 2023-24 campaign, which marks his 36th season of professional hockey.
Note: the following quote is translated from Czech
It's great to see that Jagr is still competing at a high level, especially given his age. Jagr has admitted in the past that he's uncertain what would happen with his club if he stops playing, in terms of sponsorship money, etc., so that remains his biggest motivating factor to keep playing.
Jaromir Jagr and Kladno, who also have former Montreal Canadiens forward Tomas Plekanec, are set to open their 2023-24 regular season schedule on Sunday against HC Dynamo Pardubice in what should be a very entertaining contest.
