Jaromir Jagr heading back to the Kladno Knights, his Czech hometown club – The Denver Post

PRAGUE — NHL great Jaromir Jahr has been reassigned by the Calgary Flames to the Kladno Knights, a team in his native Czech Republic that the forward owns.

The move on Monday came after Calgary placed the 45-year-old Jagr on unconditional waivers for the purpose of terminating his NHL contract so he could return to Europe to finish the season.

Kladno, just west of the capital Prague, is Jagr’s hometown.

Jagr thanked Calgary “for giving me the immense opportunity to be a part of their team and continue my NHL career,” adding “I am very disappointed that things did not turn out as we had hoped.”
