The Flames have announced today that they have assigned Jaromir Jagr to HC Kladno of the Czech 1. Liga in the Czech Republic.
Jagr, a native of Klando, Czech Republic, appeared in 22 games for the Flames this season notching one goal and six assists for seven points.
"I want to thank Brad Treliving and the Calgary Flames for giving me the immense opportunity to be a part of their team and continue my NHL career this season," said Jagr. "Although I am very disappointed that things did not turn out as we had hoped due to a number of circumstances, I am deeply grateful to the Flames, the fans and the City of Calgary for having welcomed me so generously. I now look forward to continuing the season in Kladno."
"Jaromir's career speaks for itself," said Flames General Manager Brad Treliving. "He is a legend in our sport and we are very appreciative that he selected Calgary to pursue his career in the NHL. Regretfully, with a late start to his season combined with nagging injuries, he wasn't in a position to perform at the level both he and our team had hoped. During his short time in Calgary, Jaromir demonstrated tremendous leadership and professionalism, especially with our young players. We thank him for his contributions to our group both on and off the ice."
