BREAKING - Jaromir Jagr Announces Where He's Playing This Season
BY MARK PARSONS SEPTEMBER 16, 2023 (3:01 PM)
Hockey icon Jaromir Jagr, at the age of 51, has once again defied expectations.
Playing In Czechia
Last season he joined the Czechia-based team he owns, the Kladno Knights, as a player due to a team-wide illness. Throughout that season, Jagr played 26 games, recording 14 points and maintaining an even +/- rating. His retirement seemed imminent, and some have speculated that he might return to Pittsburgh for one last run, but in a recent Instagram post, Jagr confirmed his return to the Kladno Knights for the 2023-24 season, marking his 36th year in professional hockey.

Jagr Defying The Odds
Despite playing well past NHL retirement age, he continues to deliver strong performances night after night. Jagr has openly shared that his commitment to the game also stems from the financial stability he provides to his club, especially regarding sponsorship funds. This upcoming season promises excitement, especially with the inclusion of former Montreal Canadiens forward, Tomas Plekanec. The Kladno Knights will kick off their season against HC Dynamo Pardubice on September 17th, which is anticipated to be a thrilling match.
