You can go get your #68 Flames jerseys, Calgary.

That’s because Jaromir Jagr has signed with the Flames, officially.

Jagr, who agreed to a one-year contract worth $1 million plus bonuses on Monday, arrived in Calgary on Wednesday. After a 12-hour journey from the Czech Republic, the living legend met with the media at the Saddledome.

The 45-year-old future Hall of Famer won’t get into the lineup right away, wanting to get some practices in and wait until he’s ready.

Will it be his last season in the NHL? It would appear so, saying “99.9 per cent this will be my last season.”

Is he excited about playing in Canada?

He’s not wrong.

Here’s some photos of Jagr in a Flames jersey:
