“What if I continue to enjoy it?” Explained Jagr, who is already training again after an injury.
Czech ice hockey star Jaromir Jagr starts his 34th professional season at the age of 49 – and has no plans to quit anytime soon. “If I say at 50 years of age, another time at 55 or 60 years of age, it's just because I can think of some number,” said the ex-NHL player from the CTK agency on Friday.
He doesn't want to commit himself. “What if I continue to enjoy it?” Explained Jagr, who is already training with his Czech extra-league club Rytiri Kladno (Knight Kladno) after an injury.
Jagr is also the owner of the association from the former mining town of Kladno, which is just 25 kilometers northwest of Prague. The Czech national hero is the 1998 Olympic champion, two-time world champion and two-time Stanley Cup winner. His NHL stations included the Pittsburgh Penguins, the Washington Capitals, the New York Rangers and the Calgary Flames.
