Jaromir Jagr Reflects On His Career And Admits The One Thing He Regrets Doing

Published February 18, 2024 at 7:53 PM

Jaromir Jagr, one of the hockey greats, is gearing up for a special moment as his jersey gets retired in Pittsburgh today. With an impressive career boasting 1921 points, he's second only to Wayne Gretzky in NHL history. But as Jagr prepares to celebrate this milestone, he's taking a reflective look back.

In a recent chat with reporters, Jagr admitted he's not entirely pleased with his past behavior. Known for his intense drive for success, he now recognizes that he may have been too hard on others during his prime years.

"Jagr just spoke of how he wants to be remembered. Said he wasn't a nice guy in his prime because he was so driven to be the best. Now that he's older, he said he has changed.

'God is going to ask you what you've done with your life. I'm trying to be a good person.'"

At 52, Jagr has embraced a more spiritual and calm approach to life. While he continues to play for the Kladno Knights in the Czech Extraliga, his introspective journey sheds light on his personal growth.

As he tallies up 4 assists in 15 games this season, there's anticipation for a potential Hockey Hall of Fame induction once he decides to hang up his skates for good.
