Penguins organization gives hilarious tribute to Jagr

Published February 19, 2024 at 1:09 PM

Jaromir Jagr, the 52-year-old NHL legend who had graced the league for well over 20 years reappeared on the ice today with his former team the Pittsburgh Penguins as the organization salutes one of their best players of all time with the retiring of his jersey.

Prior to the ceremony as the players entered the ice level, they decided to show their tribute to Jagr by sporting his classic mullet from the 80s and 90s by wearing his 68 sweater.

To say that Jagr is an NHL legend is an understatement as he has performed on every level possible that hockey can provide from his rookie year all the way into his 50s as he continues to play the game for the team that he owns in his home country.

What's even more remarkable is that the bulk of the team he skated with was not born when he was drafted in 1990 by the Penguins, in the first-round 5th overall. He has played an astounding 1733 NHL games scoring 766 goals with 1155 assists for 1921 points pit he was a + 322 and had 1167 penalty minutes.

He has won two Stanley cups and is the most successful player from the former Czechoslovakia.
