Happy 44th Birthday Jaromir Jagr!



Happy Birthday Jaromir Jagr from everyone here at Pens Initiative. It's been an incredible career that keeps going strong. Jagr is 4th all time with 739 goals and 1,842 points and realistically will reach 3rd on both lists before the end of the season. Even more remarkable is the 3 years he missed playing in the KHL. Without the detour overseas Jagr almost certainly has over 2,000 points on his career. 439 of those goals and 640 of those assists came with the Pittsburgh Penguins, good for second in team history behind Mario Lemieux. While he and Lemieux have had their differences in recent years, we can all expect to see the 68 - Jagr banner rise to the CEC rafters when he finally hangs up his skates. Happy Birthday to one of the all-time greats, and a player no matter whic teams he's played for will always be a Pittsburgh Penguin.

  1. I hope not. They can hang him a banner in Philly for all I care now. My interest in his banner went there with him in 2014 anyway.
