Jágr to make first appearance for Kladno since signing this week

The Czech ice hockey legend Jaromír Jágr will on Saturday make his first appearance for Kladno since signing for his hometown club on Wednesday, following his return from the NHL.

Despite knee problems, the 45-year-old will take to the ice in a second-flight clash with Benátky nad Jizerou. The game has been switched from the latter’s stadium to Liberec due to demand for tickets.

Lining up for Benátky nad Jizerou should be another veteran ice hockey star, Petr Nedvěd. Nedvěd, who played in the NHL for 15 seasons, is 46.
