Hockey: Jágr trains for first time with new team


Czech hockey legend Jaromír Jágr has trained for the first time with his new NHL team, the Calgary Flames, with whom he signed this week.

The 45-year-old player who picked up 46 points last season (16 goals, 30 assists) had warned beforehand that he hadn’t trained with a team in five months and joked after the practice that he was glad he had survived.

Calgary is Jágr’s ninth club – but first Canadian team – in 24 seasons in the NHL.
