Elliotte Friedman put social media into a frenzy when he revealed that NHL legend Jaromir Jagr was being placed on waivers by the Calgary Flames.

It was revealed a little later by none other than Bob McKenzie that Jagr has been placed on unconditional waivers, for the purpose of contract termination.

He will pursue his options in Europe.

This is a really sad way to end such an illustrious NHL career, but we wish the legend nothing but the best as he inches closer towards retirement from hockey.

Here are some of the best moments of Jagr's career.


McKenzie jumped the gun with his original tweet, but the news is almost still the same. Jagr has been placed on regular waivers, giving teams the chance to pick him up in the next 24 hours. If no one picks him up, which is likely, then he will terminate his contract and head overseas.

Stay tuned.
