Jaromir Jagr Clears Waivers, Brief Stint With The Flames Over

The NHL veteran is on his way back home to the Czech Republic.

Calgary Flames v Vancouver Canucks

As quickly as it happened, it ended. The Flames and Jaromir Jagr have parted ways this afternoon with the NHL legend clearing waivers.

The Flames placed Jagr on waivers yesterday afternoon so he could head home to HC Kladno for the rest of the season. Jagr signed with the Flames as the NHL season was starting, but it was never a good match for either the player or the team. Jagr played in 22 games with Calgary scoring 1 goal and picking up 5 assists. Much of his time with the Flames was spent battling a LBI that hampered his play.

Jagr last played for HC Kladno back in 2012-13 where he played in 34 games and scored 24 goals and had 33 assists. The move back to the Czech Republic will likely mean the end of Jagr’s storied NHL career.
