With week one nearly complete, there have been little surprises beyond expectation and it will no doubt be a couple more weeks before the pond hockey tempo evaporates. That being said, many of the guys who were active playing overseas or in the AHL clearly have their legs beneath them, pushing those still in training camp mode to play a little harder! Speaking of which, video of the week is for Jaromir Jagr, a Czech legend who scored twice, assisted on the game-winner and had a hand in all four goals in his Dallas Stars debut – a 4-3 victory against the Phoenix Coyotes last Saturday night. Jagr, who had been playing in our native Czech Republic during the lockout clearly still has what it takes at 40!
Side note: Jagr is the NHL’s active leader in goals, assists and points.
I hope he brings back the mullet.
