Jagr out tonight as Calgary starts stretch of four games in six nights

Jaromir Jagr will not play for the Calgary Flames tonight as he continues his preparations to be in top form when he plays a game for the Calgary Flames. This will Jagr’s third straight game missed since he was signed late in training camp on October 2. Jagr has been very durable having missed only 11 games in the last five seasons.

Calgary Flames Next 4 Games

Monday, Oct. 9, 2017   Flames at Anaheim ducks,  10 ET, 8 MT, 7 PT

Calgary (1-1-0) plays the first of two on the road in Southern California against the Ducks (1-0-1).

Following the game day skate Flames coach Glen Gulutzan announced Monday afternoon that recently signed Jaromir Jagr will not play in tonight’s game, which is good news for at least one Anaheim defenseman. He added there is a plan for Jagr’s debut.

Jagr has missed the first two games of the season but has proven very durable in recent years missing 8 games over the last 4 seasons and 11 games over the last 5 campaigns. The right wing was only signed a few days before the season started and was not in the proper training setting to prepare for the fast, skilled and rough NHL. Jagr has been putting in extra time after practices with some of his new teammates. Over the years the groin muscles have been Jagr’s’ most common reason for missing action so while looking good he still wants more preparation time.

Wednesday, Oct. 11,  2017   Flames at Los Angeles Kings 10:30 ET, 8:30 MT, 7:30 PT

The Flames play a second game in three days in Southern California, this time vs. Los Angeles.

Friday, Oct. 13, 2017     Ottawa Senators at Flames, 9 ET, 7 MT, 

Sandwiched between some west coast games is a Flames home game vs. Ottawa at the Saddledome.

Saturday, Oct. 14, 2017   Flames at Vancouver Cancucks  10 ET, 8 MT, 7 PT

A quick trip west following Friday’s game find the Flames playing in British Columbia. This game completes a stretch of four games in six days. After that the Flames will have no games for the next four days.

@EricFrancis of the Calgary Herald finds Jagr’s personality a refreshing change from the dull, close to the vest athletes in sports these days. Here’s his article today.

Calgary Flames Website: 

Some Jagr-related  social media accounts:

@68Jagr on twitter.  This is the real site,  the one and only official Jaromir Jagr twitter account. Postings are rare, but worth the wait.

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.

@NHLHistoryGirl This hockey lover shares interesting informational tidbits about hockey and the NHL in general from scholarly research on hockey. She gets an A+ and First Star from us. How does she do it?


@MyRegularFace  She’s another gem. Watches lots of games and gets up GIFs faster than nhl.com or anyone else out there.

@rytiriKladno The Kladno Hockey Club: Before coming to the NHL Jagr played for this team in the Czech league as a teenager. Now he owns the team. It’s in Czech  but some devices can translate to English.  Follow them at:



@HockeyCzech  National organization for hockey in the Czech Republic.

@hokej.cz is another Czech hockey site

@deniksport  very interested in Jagr and have several reporters who file stories on the Legend.



Tomas Pokorny is a Czech hockey reporter and worth a twitter follow: @topicek


@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
