The buzz is that the Calgary Flames and Jaromir Jagr are parting ways. Calgary was in a tizzy this fall when it was announced that the 45-year-old forward would be joining the Flames on a one-year $1 million deal.
It’s Jagr’s 24th NHL season and his first suiting up for a Canadian team.
Excitement swirled around the super scorer from the Czech Republic; his Flames jersey quickly sold out.
Injuries set in. Games were missed. Goals were not scored.
What’s a fella to do? All reports say that Flames are trying to let Jagr make some moves of his own. He’s owed that respect after playing for so long. There’s even buzz he could still suit up for the Czech Republic Olympic hockey team.
Jaromir Jagr gets his cha cha on?
Dancing with the Stars is launching an all-athletes edition.
Dancing with the Stars season 26, is a four-week, all-athlete edition of the ballroom competition, that premieres Mon., April 30.
DWTS could bring on one of the NHL’s all-time point scorers. Plus, he’s got the coif — and, if you didn’t know, he’s also known for his great tush. (He does 1,000 squats a day.)
Dancing With the Stars is always jammed with athletes and the show likes to stack it with football players; hockey players on the show are rare, although Sean Avery did make it to the dance floor.
Former NFL players Emmitt Smith, Hines Ward, Donald Driver, and Rashad Jennings each won their seasons; Olympic gold medalists Apolo Anton Ohno (speed skating), Kristi Yamaguchi (figure skating), Shawn Johnson (gymnastics), Meryl Davis (ice dancing), and Laurie Hernandez (gymnastics) also won the mirror ball trophy.
Dancing With the Stars meet Jaromir Jagr.
