Jagr plays alongside Bennett, Versteeg at first Flames practice

Jaromir Jagr skated with his new Calgary Flames teammates for the first time Thursday and the NHL’s elder statesman participated in drills on a line with Sam Bennett and Kris Versteeg.

It’s unclear when the future Hall of Famer will make his Flames debut, but it could come as early as Saturday against the Winnipeg Jets.

A Versteeg-Bennett-Jagr trio would likely serve as the team’s third line.

Curtis Lazar never managed to stake his claim as a third-line winger during training camp and the pre-season, which was a contributing factor in the Flames bringing Jagr into the fold. At Thursday’s skate, Lazar, who was acquired in a March trade with the Ottawa Senators, was on the outside looking in.
