Jaromír Jágr to play in next fixture for Kladno Knights

In ice hockey, Jaromír Jágr confirmed that he will take the ice for the Kladno Knights on Saturday in the first division against Benátky nad Jizerou.

Jágr, who returned from Canada on Wednesday, took part in training with his new team for the first time on Thursday. He said the around 45 minute session hurt him more than expected.

Jágr said he is keen to make a start for his home town club as soon as possible so that he can take part in the end of season play offs for promotion to the top Czech league if they get that far. Jágr, 45, returned to the Czech Republic after his stint playing for the Calgary Flames in the NHL came to an end.
