Hockey: Bruins, Jágr, to part ways

27-06-2013

The general manager of the Boston Bruins, Peter Chiarelli, has confirmed that future hall-of-famer Jaromír Jágr will not be with the club next season. The GM confirmed the decision at a press conference at TD Garden on Wednesday, in which he praised the Czech winger and said he had been happy with his game. But Jágr himself joked with reporters that had he scored 20 goals (and not finished 20 short) in the playoffs he might have been back. While the player was unable to snap his scoreless streak, he was important on a number of key plays when games went down the wire. The 41-year-old Jágr will now weigh his options but intends to remain in the NHL.
