Biographical Info

One of the greatest players of all time, Jaromir Jagr continues to bring people to their seats as a member of the Florida Panthers. When Jagr entered the NHL in 1990 at the age of 18, he was the youngest player in the league. Currently playing on a young Panthers team, Jagr is the oldest active player in the NHL and the last player from the 1990 NHL Draft class still active. Drafted 5th overall by Pittsburgh, Jagr contributed immediately to a strong Penguins team, winning the Stanley Cup in each of his first 2 seasons (1991, 1992). Throughout his tenure with the Penguins, Jagr won 5 Art Ross Trophies as the NHL’s leading scorer (1995, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001), 2 Lester B. Pearson Awards as the NHL’s MVP voted by the players (1999, 2000) and the 1999 Hart Trophy as the NHL MVP.Between 1981 and 2001, Jagr was the only player besides Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemieux to win the Art Ross Trophy. Jagr was traded to the Washington Capitals in the 2001 off season, where he’d spend 2 and half seasons, before being traded again midway through the 2003/04 season to the New York Rangers. The 2005/06 season saw Jagr return to his old form, as he netted 54 goals and 123 points through 82 games, finishing 2nd in the NHL in both goals and points. After 3 seasons with the Rangers, Jagr left the NHL and signed Omsk Avangard of Russia’s KHL. Jagr would return to the NHL after playing 3 years in the KHL, joining the Philadelphia Flyers for a single season. After a season with the Flyers and a partial season with the Dallas Stars, the Stars traded Jagr to the Boston Bruins at the 2013 deadline. Jagr would help the Bruins to the Stanley Cup Finals, losing in 6 games to the Chicago Blackhawks. After a season and a half with the New Jersey Devils, Jagr was traded at the 2015 NHL trade deadline to the Florida Panthers, with whom he continues to climb up the NHL all-time points list.
