Legends Never Die by @MedinaMarie_PI

It may seem like a blink of an eye, but 28 years have passed since the announcement that Jaromir Jagr has been drafted by the Pittsburgh Penguins. Since then, the man, the myth, the legend that is Jags has gone on to have an illustrious and record setting career in the NHL.

1733 Games played (3rd all time)
766 Goals (3rd all time)
1,155 Assists (5th all time)
1,921 Career Points (only second behind Wayne Gretzky)

Two (back-to-back) Stanley Cup Championships
Five scoring titles
Five Lester B. Pearson awards
One Hart trophy
One Massterton trophy

Sadly, as they say, all good things must eventually come to an end. Today marks the end of an era for Jagr, as his contract was bought out by his last NHL team, the Calgary Flames. He will continue his hockey career back where it began, playing for HC Kladno of the Czech Republic.

Fun Fact: Jagr is majority owner of HC Kladno.

He is forever a fan favorite.
He is forever a Penguin.
He is.....#Forever68.

Good luck to you, Jagr and thank you for all the memories.
