After much anticipation, we finally have the answer to the question of the summer:  Where will Jaromir Jagr play this season?

According to Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet, Jaromir Jagr has signed a one-year contract with the Calgary Flames. That’s right, “the Mullet” is heading North—way North—to Calgary, Alberta. Jagr will have to trade in his Florida shorts for a goose-down parka.

The deal is believed to be worth a base salary of $1 million, with $1 million available in bonuses.


Jagr appeared in all 82 games for the Florida Panthers last season, recording 16 goals and 30 assists for 46 points. Entering his 27th NHL season, Jagr, a surefire future Hall of Fame inductee, will celebrate his 46th birthday in February.

A two-time Stanley Cup champion, Jagr is second on the NHL’s all-time points list with 1,914, trailing only Wayne Gretzky (2,857). He’s third on the NHL’s all-time goals list with 765, behind Gretzky (894) and Gordie Howe (801).
