WILMINGTON, Mass. - Jaromir Jagr is headed back to where his brilliant career began.
He'll be in Pittsburgh with the Boston Bruins when they begin the Eastern Conference finals against the Penguins.
Jagr spent 11 years with the Penguins and capped his first two NHL seasons with Stanley Cups in 1991 and 1992. More than two decades later, the 41-year-old right wing is trying to help the Bruins win their second in three years.
It's such a privilege to be one of these 80 great players to do this milestone, and it doesn't get better than this doing it where I started. It means a lot to me. A big thanks goes to all the players tonight who helped me to achieve that and also all the players through my career.
