10:30 p.m. ET; SNW, FS-W, NHL.TV
Forward Jaromir Jagr will begin his 24th NHL season when he makes his debut for the Calgary Flames against the Los Angeles Kings at Staples Center on Wednesday.
Jagr, who signed a one-year contract worth $1 million and can receive another $1 million in incentives, has spent the week getting up to speed with the Flames. He played 82 games with the Florida Panthers last season, scoring 46 points (16 goals, 30 assists) averaging 16:59 minutes of ice time.
Jagr will play on a line with Sam Bennett and Kris Versteeg. Flames coach Glen Gulutzan plans to monitor Jagr's workload after he did not participate in training camp or preseason games.
The Kings are seeking their first three-game winning streak to start a season since 2002-03.
Goalie Jonathan Quick (2-0-0) has stopped 59 of 60 shots (0.50 goals against average, .983 save percentage).
Players to watch
Flames forward Johnny Gaudreau has five points (one goal, four assists) in his past two games, including three power-play assists.
Kings center Anze Kopitar had three points (two goals, one assist) in a 4-1 win against San Jose Sharks on Saturday. Kopitar did not have a multi-point game until the 19th game of the 2016-17 season.
