Former Flyer showing he still loves hockey at age 51

Although only playing for the Flyers for one year, Jaromir Jagr is one of the all-time folk heroes in all of hockey. Jagr came into the NHL in 1990, and is still playing hockey. Most recently, Jagr laced up his skates for his 36th straight season as he took the ice for Rytíři Kladno in the Czech Extraliga.

Not only did Jagr defy father time once again, but he even recorded an assist as he received a breakaway pass and cut to the inside. Jagr recorded 13 minutes of ice time and two shots on goal to go along with his assist.

Not bad for 51 years old. Jagr is also a majority owner of the Rytíři Kladno club and former Flyers' great Jakub Voracek is an assitant coach for the club.




In his one year with the Flyers in 2011, Jagr scored 19 goals, recorded 35 assists, and 54 points while playing in 73 games. Jagr is also a two-time Stanley Cup Champion, a Hart Memorial Trophy Winner and one of the most respected men in the hockey community.

Feel old yet, Flyers fans? If there's anything fans can learn from this, it's never too late to lace up the skates and show the younger generations how it's done.
