The old guy’s not done yet.
As his NHL career came to a rather uneventful end with the Calgary Flames this year, many fans understandably figured that Jaromir Jagr’s days on the ice were nearing its end.
But if there’s one thing we’ve learned about the future Hall of Famer over the years, it’s to never count him out.
The 46-year-old is going to play another season.
HC Kladno (Czech 1. Liga) has signed forward Jaromir Jagr to a one-year contact.

Jagr has reportedly signed a contract with HC Kladno in the Czech Republic. That’s the same team he joined midway through last season and a team he owns.
Shortly after joining Kladno last season, Jagr suffered a concussion, which limited his Czech season to just five games.

While it remains to be seen what Jagr can do at his advanced age, you know that he will sell tickets. Jagr’s debut with Kladno last season caused the team to switch arenas to accommodate a larger audience.
