Calgary Flames head coach Glen Gulutzan confirmed this morning that veteran Jaromir Jagr will make his return to the team’s lineup for tonight’s game against the Arizona Coyotes.
Jagr missed Tuesday night’s 4-1 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs due to a lower body injury, but will be good to go tonight, likely on a line with Mark Jankowski. No word yet on who will play the left side, however.
In 14 games with the Flames this season, the 45-year-old Jagr has one goal and six points. Here’s hoping he can help jumpstart Jankowski who has cooled a bit after a quick start to his NHL career.
