Ice hockey star Jaromír Jágr looks set to remain with his hometown club
Kladno next season. The 46-year-old’s name is among the 16 players listed
as being on Kladno’s roster for the 2018–2019 season, which has been
published on the club’s website.
Jágr, the second most productive player in the history of the NHL, joined Kladno from Calgary at the end of January. He subsequently played only four full games before being largely sidelined by the return of a knee injury.
In ice hockey, the Czech Republic lost 2: 5 against Finland in the latest

The loss leaves the Czechs without any points so far in the final competition ahead of the World Championships taking place in Denmark. The Czech team take on Russia on Sunday in a bid to secure third place.
The Finns took a two goal lead in the first quarter. Adam Musil narrowed the lead with his first goal for his country but the Finns followed up in the last period with three more goals to put the game beyond the Czechs.
