Gotta See It: Jagr hints at NHL interest with purrfect tweet

Watch as Jaromir Jagr assists on a goal by Greg McKegg to move himself into sole possession of 5th place on the NHL’s all-time assists list.

Apparently, Jaromir Jagr is feline pretty confident that an NHL deal could be on its way.

Or, his cat is anyway. Jagr won the internet this weekend when he tweeted out this purrfect photo paired with a caption that just furthers the rumours that the free agent forward will land on his feet after the Florida Panthers declined to re-sign him this summer.

We can’t know fur sure whether the longtime NHL veteran is just having a little self-deprecating fun on social media (as he tends to do) or if he’s serving up a hilarious hint at a pending NHL contract, but reports from this past week indicate teams are interested.

On Friday, we learned that Jagr opted not to play for Czech team HC Kladno this weekend due to NHL interest from a few teams—one of which has been rumoured to be the injury-ravaged St. Louis Blues.

Either way, it looks like a pawsitively wild Caturday night at the Jagr household.
