Jaromir Jagr isn't ruling out a return to Calgary, though he admits that the odds aren't good.
Jagr cleared waivers and was assigned to HC Kladno in Czech 1 Liga. Since then he revealed that the lower-body injury that limited him to only 22 games was a knee issue that he initially tried to play through, but got worse. He said that he hasn't been on the ice for about a month, which the exception for some light skating. "The chance is still open, even though it now looks minimal, that I could come back to play for Calgary, in case (HC Kladno) would have finished the season here earlier than we expect," Jagr said. "But my current goal is to get healthy and get back in shape to help Kladno advance to Extraliga." Feb 2 - 4:58 AM

Jaromir Jagr, who was recently assigned to HC Kladno in Czech 1 Liga, took to Facebook to caution local fans about getting too excited about his return.

His post provided insight in just how significant Jagr's recent injury problems have been. "I haven’t been on the ice for about a month, except for some easy skating, and I can’t say what shape I’m in right now," Jagr said, per NHL.com's translation. "And I don’t want the fans to buy tickets to just see some old grandpa hobble on the ice." Jagr was only able to play in 22 games with the Flames this season due to a persistent knee injury. He revealed that he initially tried to play through the pain, but his knee got worse over time and it weakened, which impacted his game. Jagr will celebrate his 46th birthday on Feb. 15th and whatever happens, his longevity has been remarkable.

Jaromir Jagr has been assigned to HC Kladno in Czech 1 Liga by the Calgary Flames.

That was expected to happen after Jagr cleared waivers Monday afternoon. The 45-year-old winger only skated in 22 games with Calgary this season and he posted seven points (one goal, six assists).

Jaromir Jagr has gone unclaimed on waivers.

According to TSN's Bob McKenzie, it is expected that Jagr's NHL contract will be loaned to HC Kladno. Jagr is the co-owner and team president of the second-level ice hockey team, which plays under the Czech Extraliga. If this is indeed the end for Jagr's NHL career then it will finish with 1921 points in 1733 games.

Should Jaromir Jagr pass through waivers, he could be headed back to his hometown team HC Kladno.

The Flames placed Jagr on waivers Sunday and he is expected to pass through on Monday as it is likely no NHL team is interested in the 45-year-old. The Flames then could release him or loan him to a European team. Jagr is a part-owner of HC Kladno and was considering playing there this season before the Flames came a-knocking. If Jagr's NHL career is over, the stats he accumulated are quite impressive including second all-time in points with 1,914, third in games played at 1,711 and the all-time leader in game winning goals with 133.

Calgary has placed Jaromir Jagr on waivers.

Jagr is expected to end up on unconditional waivers for the purpose of contract termination or be loaned to a team overseas if he isn't claimed by another NHL team. Either way, he is expected to continue playing in Europe. Still, the 45-year-old veteran probably won't be claimed and that would be an unfortunate way for his NHL career to come to an end.

Jaromir Jagr (groin) didn't travel with the Flames to Minnesota ahead of Tuesday's game.

Elliotte Friedman reported that Jagr and the Flames are in talks to amicably part ways. His agent has been given permission to talk to other teams to see if there's a taker, but if there isn't then it's possible that his contract will be mutually terminated. Jagr has served as a mentor for the Flames' young stars like Johnny Gaudreau, but his performance on the ice this season has been limited by a nagging groin injury. He has a goal and seven points in 22 contests.

Jaromir Jagr contributed to the Flames this season as a mentor.

Jagr is expected to part ways with the Flames shortly in a mutual decision as he has been dropped to the bottom of the depth charts when healthy and he is not healthy at this time. He did not participate in Sunday's skill competition but he helped Johnny Gaudreau get off to the best start of his young career and his presence in the dressing room was enormous. Jagr has seven points in 22 games this season and there remains the possibility that he could play for the Czechs at the Olympics if he splits with Calgary.

Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reported on Saturday that the Flames and Jaromir Jagr are going to go their separate ways.

The Flames signed Jagr in early October to a one-year deal as the soon to be 46-year-old was chasing Gordie Howe's record for the most games played in an NHL career, figuring his veteran presence would help the Flames. "The Calgary Flames and Jaromir Jagr are working on an exit," Friedman said between periods of Sportsnet's coverage of the early evening games. "There’s a certain amount of respect he’s earned and deserves to have, and Calgary is trying to give it to him. His agent (Petr Svoboda) has been given permission to talk to every other team in the league to see if there’s a fit for him. At this time, there isn’t .. but his time in Calgary is about done." Jagr has seven points in 22 games and is third all-time in games played with 1733, 34 behind Howe and 23 in arrears of Mark Messier. It remains to be seen if any NHL team is interested in his services.

Jaromir Jagr did not practice for much of this week as he is still nursing a groin muscle pull.

Even when the 45-year-old Jagr does play, his groin muscle injury is an issue. We would bench the future Hall of Famer until further notice.

Jaromir Jagr will not play Thursday night.

Jagr also wasn't on the ice for Thursday's practice. He's been dealing with a nagging lower-body injury, so that might be the reason he's out, but it hasn't been confirmed that he's hurt. Flames coach Glen Gulutzan said that there would be more information about Jagr on Friday, which makes things a bit mysterious for now.
