Jaromir Jagr has signed on with the Calgary Flames for a one-year, $1 million contract (plus bonuses), and Twitter is already going nuts.
This will be the ninth NHL team for the 45-year-old in his career, and likely where he will surpass Gordie Howe’s all-time games played record – as he only needs 56 more under his belt.
Flames fans have already embraced the old hand as a new addition to the Calgary roster, and many feel that it is the perfect spot given some… similarities Jagr has with the team’s logo.
