BREAKING - Jaromir Jagr Announces Where He's Playing This Season

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.

Translated to English:

"Hi ⭐️. Another hockey season has begun. Now I read that I played for Kladno in the extra league for the first time 35 years ago. It's been a while. But the nervousness, the anticipation before the start... It's still the same. At home at the ČEZ stadium, we play for the first time tomorrow against the strong Pardubice. I'm looking forward to hockey and the pre-match program that @kauflandcesko and I have prepared. Among other things, Olga Lounová will perform before the match. He has a nice song about being an eternal optimist. I think we all need a bit of optimism for the season. I believe it will be better than the previous one. And what about you? How are you looking forward to 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.
