Jagr crashes interview with Traveling Jagrs, presents Flames jersey

Legendary forward has fun with group dedicated to his incredible career @NHLdotcom

The Traveling Jagrs were looking for a new member to be Calgary Jagr after the living legend signed with the Flames. So why not the real life Jaromir Jagr?

Well, he might not be available to sit in the stands during games, but he did solve their jersey problem.

The group's namsake crashed an interview with the superfans during the first intermission of a game against the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday.

Tweet from @NHLFlames: The Traveling Jagrs (@68isgr8) stopped by #Flames TV Live ... and were surprised by 6������8������ himself!

The group was extra excited about their hero signing in Calgary, since that is where they are based.

"That's why I signed!" Jagr said.

Before the future Hall of Famer crashed the party with a brand new autographed jersey for the group, there were a couple of members in Flames practice jerseys.

Jagr, who is seemingly always in good humor, had a suggestion for the group's organizer and Dallas Jagr, Trevor Freeman.

"Well we needed one more guy. I'm from Calgary, so," as the group went wild. "You know what? I'm going to try to play and if I'm not good, I'm just gonna stay here all year and we're just gonna party."
