Jagr unable to keep promise to play in ice hockey World Championships

28-03-2002

Czech ice hockey fans will be disappointed to hear that it looks like Jaromir Jagr will not after all be taking part in next month's World Championships in Sweden. Jagr had promised to help his country defend the title they've won the last three years in a row - now it seems his NHL club the Washington Capitals are not prepared to let him play in the World Championships.
