Jaromir Jagr makes Calgary Flames debut

Jaromir Jagr was held pointless in his Flames debut, but Calgary was still victorious over the Los Angeles Kings on Wednesday night.

Flames coach Glen Gulutzan said that Jagr will play right wing on the third line with Sam Bennett at center and Kris Versteeg on the left side.

Second only to Wayne Gretzky in National Hockey League career scoring with 1,914 points, Jagr signed a one-year, $1 million contract with the Flames to play his 24th season. His goal total is eclipsed only by Wayne Gretzky (894) and Gordie Howe (801) while his point total (1,914) is second only to "The Great One" (2,857). After missing the team's first three games of the regular season, he will suit up and begin his 23rd season with his ninth National Hockey League franchise. He has played for the Pittsburgh Penguins, New York Rangers, New Jersey Devils, Boston Bruins, Philadelphia Flyers, Washington Capitals, Dallas Stars and Panthers during his decorated career.
