Even Jaromir Jagger raises an eyebrow quickly. He weighed 120 kg when promoted to Czech Extra League. “Up to 130 with equipment.” The extraordinary expert says this is not good for health around the age of 50.
Jagger has just managed to make a comeback in the House of Lords with his club, Kladno. two years ago. Until then, people thought that was the end of their active careers. The man is a two-time winner of the Stanley Cup (Pittsburgh), world champion, Olympic champion, recipient of countless individual awards and honors. Even at KHL he got his spurs. Now, says Jagger, with a 4-0 score in the decisive seventh match against rival Jehlava, he was already thinking about how to prevent relegation next year and laying out the appropriate plans.
Jagger will turn 50 in February 2022
There will definitely be Thomas Plekanek (who’s already 38). Plekanec also has over 1,000 NHL games under his belt (especially for Montreal), and like Jagr, he comes from the industrial city of Central Bohemia. Jagger smiled. “My boyfriend just needs some time off now.” “Then there will be again.”
Jagger will turn 50 this February. His club’s ice rink needs to be renewed, and you’ll have to look for alternatives until the renovation ends. All he has to do is lose some weight himself, and then get back to normal again. “I don’t want to stop playing ice hockey,” club owner Jagr told the Czech sports portal idnes.cz. “Do you know why? Because I have a responsibility towards my team.” (DK)
