Something too good to spoil with a headline as @68Jagr sits, Flames win

Follow the link to for something heartwarming and maybe even a few tears of joy for Jaromir Jagr fans

While Jagr missed the first two Calgary Flames games he received a warm ovation from his new home fans who were treated to a few scoreboard interviews with Jagr and a 6-3 win by the Flames, who rallied from a 3-1 deficit.

The win evened the Flames record at 1-1-0 and the team

A few more practices and some more bike time and Jagr could be ready to go when Calgary plays at Anaheim on Monday. During one interview Jagr said the practices have been demanding enough that he has the keys but has not used the Flames training facilities for the famous late night workouts he believes are necessary to keep him in the NHL.

Flames play games in California on Monday vs. Anaheim and Wednesday vs. the Kings. The last time Jagr played in Anaheim this happened.

It was Jagr’s 135th career game winning goal and likes to share it anytime a link  to that youtube.coom video can be justified.

Jagr  said Monday was possible in interviews on flames TV.  Waiting is wise. Jagr could play just as easy as not, but coming in to soon risks more good than harm. His most recurring injury through his career has been groin pulls A few more days of workouts to catch up on tuning up for the season makes sense.  Playing too soon means He would miss more games just for the sake of getting him into the lineup. Smart by the Flames for giving Jagr the chance to gauge his preparedness for maximum benefit to the team.

The Jagr effect and what it could mean for Flames

yahoosports covers this topic in a puckdaddy article by Ryan Lambert. A lot has been reported this week but this is one of the better essays

Quote of the day:

“Jagr is the Wayne Gretzky of European Hockey”

— Billy Christian aka Flyers Jagr

The Czech Republic, as always, is informed on news involving Jagr. Translate to your language of choice if your browser allows. While Jagr said he might be a go on Monday in Anaheim, this article says he might not be ready for that game. Regardless, Jagr is coming soon!

Calgary Flames Website: 

Some Jagr-related  social media accounts:

@68Jagr  This is the real site,  the one and only official Jaromir Jagr twitter account. Postings are rare, but worth the wait. Jagr has been more active on Twitter this season.

The two best Jagr facebook pages are:

This is the page Jagr posts on, if he is going to post at all. With 700,000+ followers, he doesn’t monitor the page that closely or answer messages, so don’t be offended.

Another good facebook page is one produced by someone in the Czech Republic. It has more than 100,000 likes. This is not the official page, but it is very good.

@NHLFlames is the official twitter of the Calgary Flames.

The following Flames Bloggers should have some Jagr content this season:








@Zdenek_Janda   Czech reporter who covers the NHL and reports on other news for the people of the Czech Republic, sometimes from the USA.


@Jsmidcro    Jan Smid was a US-based Czech reporter who collaborated on “Jagr”, an autobiography in the late 90’s detailing Jagr’s early life and career in the NHL. Smid now covers international affairs but has remained friends with Jagr through the years. A good follow for his international news. The book is till available on Amazon and ebay, tells the early story of Jagr’s life and career through 1996. Comes with a nice replica autograph inside so don’t be fooled by claims that the book is hand-signed by Jagr unless there’s a second, smaller signature somewhere.

@68isgr8  is the twitter for The Traveling Jagrs. Clad in different Jagr jerseys and hair styles from 68’s career, they gained league-wide recognition when they caught Jagr’s attention during a pre-game skate of a Dallas Stars game in Canada during the 2012-2013 season. Since then, they convene at games in Western Canada and make a road trip or two every year, playing street hockey with locals, posing for hundreds of pictures, and having a good time with fans while honoring an all-time NHL legend. This is the official site for the group but is the personal twitter for Dallas Stars Jagr, aka Trevor Freeman
