If this sounds familiar, it should.
It was nearly a year ago that Jagr announced his retirement from the Czech national team following a loss to Sweden in the bronze medal game at the 2014 World Hockey Championship.
The 43-year-old returned to play at this year’s tournament because it was in the Czech Republic.
Jagr had six goals and three assists in 10 games at this year’s tournament.
