Bruins forward Jaromir Jagr last played in the Stanley Cup Final in 1992, and 21 years later, he’s back playing for the third Cup in his Hall of Fame career. In between Final appearances, Jagr dazzled while playing hockey across the world, picking up plenty of fans along the way. One of those fans was a young Jonathan Toews. The Chicago Blackhawks captain admitted at Tuesday’s Stanley Cup Final media day that he, like just about every other hockey player growing up in the last 10-20 years, was a fan of Jagr. Now, Toews is going up against Jagr with the game’s greatest prize on the line. “It’s pretty amazing,” Toews said Tuesday. “He was probably one of my favorite players when I was a kid. I think I wore No. 68 when I was playing summer hockey a couple of seasons, I guess. I had his Koho Jagr stick, so I really looked up to him when I was a young kid. I was probably 9 or 10 at that age and here I am getting a chance to play against him in the Stanley Cup Final. That’s pretty amazing...

Jaromir Jagr Predicts Mullet, Long Hairstyle Isn’t Dead, Says It Will Return at Some Point

Toews on Boston's 2011 Cup win: "I was just glad Vancouver didn't win"

Chicago forward Jonathan Toews might still be a little bitter about the 2011 NHL playoffs. The Chicago Blackhawks were eliminated from the playoffs in the first round after seven games against the Vancouver Canucks. Chicago fell in a huge 0-3 hole, but mounted an impressive comeback to force a seventh game. Vancouver won Game 7 in OT, sending them through and sending Chicago home...
