Hockey legend Jaromir Jagr faced uncertainty about his playing future last season but ultimately donned the jersey of his Czech club, the Kladno Knights, due to a team illness in December.

During the previous season, the 51-year-old Jagr showcased his enduring skills in 26 games, amassing an impressive 14 points (comprising five goals and nine assists) with 16 penalty minutes and an even rating. If anyone had doubts about Jagr considering retirement, they need to think again.

This Saturday, Jagr chose Instagram as his platform to deliver the news: he's returning for the 2023-24 campaign with Kladno, marking a remarkable 36th season in professional hockey.

In his Instagram post, Jagr conveyed his enthusiasm for the upcoming season and reminisced about his remarkable 35-year journey with Kladno. He shared,

"Hi ⭐️. Another hockey season has begun. Now I read that I played for Kladno in the extra league for the first time 35 years ago. It's been a while. But the nervousness, the anticipation before the start... It's still the same. At home at the ČEZ stadium, we play for the first time tomorrow against the strong Pardubice. I'm looking forward to hockey and the pre-match program that @kauflandcesko and I have prepared. Among other things, Olga Lounová will perform before the match. He has a nice song about being an eternal optimist. I think we all need a bit of optimism for the season. I believe it will be better than the previous one. And what about you? How are you looking forward to hockey?" Jagr said.

Kladno, featuring not only the iconic Jaromir Jagr but also former Montreal Canadiens forward Tomas Plekanec, is set to commence their 2023-24 regular season against HC Dynamo Pardubice in what promises to be an electrifying showdown.
