Found August 21, 2013 on Around The Rink:
Jagr also holds the NHL’s unofficial record for awesomest mullet. Photo: Robert Laberge, Allsport/Getty Images It looks like Jaromir Jagr’s NHL comeback will end after three years. Though he has played well since returning the league after a three-year stint in Russia’ KHL, it’s clear he’s not the same player he was when he left the NHL in 2008. Which isn’t exactly unexpected- he’s 41 and a veteran of 23 professional hockey seasons, including his time in the NHL and overseas. Jagr posted a note on his Facebook page saying he was “thinner, but physically weaker. It looks like this will be my last season…” (word to the wise: you’ll need to translate the original post if you want to read it- Jagr posts everything in Czech). Jagr will be playing this season with the New Jersey Devils, after signing a one-year deal with them this offseason. For his career, he’s played with the Pittsburgh Penguins, Washington Capitals, New York Rangers, Philadelphia Flyers, Dallas Stars, Boston Bruins, and now the Devils. He ranks eighth all-time in the NHL with 1,688 points and 10th all-time in goals with 681. He’s within striking distance of several other NHL all-time leaders- a mere 14 goals this year will vault him past Mark Messier (694), Steve Yzerman (692) and Mario Lemieux (690) for seventh all-time in that category, and 35 points will get him ahead of Lemieux for the eighth spot on the NHL’s list of all-time points leaders.
