Despite being 52, Jagr fully participated in practice, showcasing his lethal shot, though his speed wasn't what it used to be. Although he's not in the NHL anymore, Jagr still plays professional hockey in Czechia with the team he owns in his hometown of Kladno.


During practice, some Penguins players like Kris Letang and Alex Nedeljkovic wore mullet wigs in homage to Jagr's famous hairdo from his NHL days.


A large crowd attended the practice, with many young kids cheering mainly for Penguins captain Sidney Crosby, despite the excitement over Jagr's presence.


Jagr is in town for the retirement of his number 68 jersey by the Penguins, which will happen before their game against the Los Angeles Kings at PPG Paints Arena.
