Jaromir Jagr – Brief Bio
Jaromír Jágr was born on February 15, 1972, in Kladno, Czech Republic (former Czechoslovakia), the son of father Jaromír Jágr and mother Anna Jagrova. Already at a very young age, Jaromír Jágr showed an incredible passion for the sport of field hockey, and early enough he started playing professionally for his country at the age of 15. Due to his exceptional skills, it was no surprise that he received the approval of his government to declare for the NHL draft, which also made him the first Czechoslovakian to do so.
In 1990 the penguins elected him to the fifth overall selection. As proof that he was indeed an enrichment for the team, he helped the Penguins extremely by scoring a total of 27 goals in the 1990/1991 season. He also helped his team win their very first Stanley Cup. This achievement earned him the NHL All-Star Team title, and the Penguins helped him win the same title in the 1991/1992 season. In the 1994/95 season, his performance even reached an admirable peak when he took the offensive position for the team to make up for the absence of his teammate Mario Lemieux. It is impressive that even after Mario Lemieux’s return, he continued to play on the offensive and won the title of top scorer from the 1997/98 season to the 2000/2001 season. In 2001, Jaromir Jagr was then transferred to the Washington capitals, not because of poor performance, but because of the high amount of money that was characteristic of Jaromir’s six-year contract ($48 million).
When the 2007/08 season was over, Jaromir was a free player, and in the same season, he was signed to the Avangard Omsk of the Russian Continental Hockey League. After playing three seasons for the Russian team, he signed a one-year contract with the Philadelphia Flyers. After his contract with the Flyers expired, he played for two other teams (Dallas Stars and Boston Bruins) between 2012 and 2013.
In the 2012 off-season, Jaromir Jagr later signed a contract with the New Jersey Devils, but soon after that, he switched to the Florida Panthers in February 2015. By December 2016, Jagr achieved an NHL coach high score of 1,888 points, which in turn put him in second place as the athlete with one of the highest scores, just behind Wayne Gretzky. The Calgary Flames were the next team to sign him in October 2017, but after only three months he was released after a total of 22 games, mainly due to recurrent injuries. So he decided to return to his home country, the Czech Republic, in 2018, where he has since joined HC Kladno, a team that he actually owns.
Is He Married? Girlfriend, Wife, Kids
Jaromir Jagr has had his own fair share of beautiful women throughout his life and career. Given his charming looks, fame, and wealth, most ladies would want to go out with him. Iva Kubelkova was the girlfriend he had since he was new to fame at that time. Although the couple moved in together as a married couple for three years, they finally broke up in 1996. Three years later, in 1999, he met Nikol Lenertova and started dating her. Unfortunately, this relationship ended, as did his earlier one, when the couple did not make it to the altar. After that, he had a short romantic affair with Lucie Borhyováin (2004) and Inna Puhajková (2006).
Jaromir Jagr was officially a single and unattached man for a long time after his previous relationships, but that changed in 2015 when he met the former beauty queen (Miss Czech Beauty Contest 2012) Veronika Koprivová. According to reports, they are supposedly still together, maybe this is the one that ends before the altar.
So far, the field hockey winger is not aware of any children.
