Jaromir Jagr entered the NHL in 1990 as a colorful player with an overflowing amount of charisma and talent. He likely leaves the NHL in 2018 with the same devilish charm plus 1,921 points.

The failed stint with the Calgary Flames doesn’t alter his stature as one of the NHL’s all-time greats. It's sad that his NHL career is likely to end on waivers. He deserved better.

Bothered by injuries since his Oct. 2 start with the Flames, Jagr, 45, and the Flames parted ways. Jagr will return to play in Europe with the Czech team Kladno. He had seven points in 22 games with Calgary.

Jagr is the second-highest point producer in NHL history, trailing only Wayne Gretzky. He won five scoring championships and one Hart Trophy as league MVP during his 24-season NHL career.
