Jaromir Jagr: 'I don't want to cry'
By Scott Burnside
Although he didn’t play particularly well against the New Jersey Devils, Philadelphia Flyers winger Jaromir Jagr said he enjoyed his return to the NHL after spending the past three seasons in the KHL.
“I don’t know what’s going to happen," Jagr said. "It doesn’t really matter what’s going to happen. I have to say thanks for all the support from the fans and I love everybody on this team. It was probably my most enjoyable year I ever had. I mean I won some Cups, I won some trophies, but I loved this year.”
The 40-year-old has said he would like to play again next season.
“From the organization to the last player on the team and the fans, they were so nice to me," Jagr said. "I hate to finish it right now. That’s the worst feeling. You finish the whole story the whole year, that’s a sad day today for me. I don’t want to cry.”
Jagr had just one assist in the series against the Devils. He played 73 regular-season games, recording 19 goals and 35 assists.
