Kladno Welcomed the King of Hockey at first home game

Kladno hopes Jagr is the missing piece to the puzzle. The King has four points in three games, even though the team is 1-2 in those games. Four games remain in the regular season for third-place Kladno, which hopes to finish no worse than fourth and earn home ice in the first round of the playoffs.

Jagr entered the ice to much excitement before the game. The home team left disappointed dropping a 1:4 decision at home to Litomerice.  A tight race sees the Knights unlikely to finish better than third, holding only a three-point advantage, or a regulation win edge over the current sixth place team.

Kladno plays two this week with playoff implications

The Knights (86 points) visit fifth-place Slavia (83 points) on Wednesday, Feb. 14. A regulation win by Slavia would push them ahead of the Knights

The Knights host Havirov, which starts the week with 76 points, on Saturday, Feb. 17.  This game would be the final chance for Havirov to save their fading playoff hopes, depending on the outcome of Wednesday’s games.

The battle for third place now sees one of two teams tied with 86 points but Kladno getting the nod due to more wins. Two other teams are hopeful with 83 points.

Jagr spoke after the game, some of which is in transcript form and can be translated from Czech.

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:

https://www.facebook.com/68Jagr/?fref=ts

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.

@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.

TRAVELLING JAGRS links

@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

Speaking of pictures or any other inquiries–write to the Travelling Jagrs directly at thetravellingjagrs@gmail.com.
