On the 12th day of December, The Hockey News gave to its readers three more stories to recap the week that was from around the hockey world:
Jaromir Jagr Turns Back Father Time Once Again
When your team is short on skaters and facing a second straight game postponement due to an illness outbreak, what do you do? If you’re Jaromir Jagr, the owner of Klando you make your return to the ice.
The 50-year-old player/owner made his season debut with the Czech Extraliga this weekend in a 7-3 loss to Liberec, but in 15 minutes of ice time, he put up two assists.
A two-point night at 50 in his 35th season of pro hockey is not too shabby. The Hockey Hall of Fame should really make an exception with the waiting period and induct him as apart of the 2023 class. His eligibility really shouldn’t be pushed back to 2026 at the earliest for because of this return to the ice.
The Washington Capitals Are Getting Into The Christmas Spirit
Looking for something fun to do in DC? The Washington Capitals have you covered.
This past week the team announced the opening of Capitals Winter At The Wharf, a brand new fan experience at the Wharf which runs from Dec. 8 to Feb. 25.
There are team-themed igloos for fans to lounge in and watch Capitals content as well as viewing parties and skating events for fans.
Judging from the footage, if you’re in the area, it looks to be worth checking out this winter.
