Jaromir Jagr is hurting… Again

It’s been a few weeks since we’ve heard about Jaromir Jagr hurting his lower body during a game so we were long overdue for something like that to happen.

Sure enough during the Flyers’ 4-1 win over New Jersey, Jagr left the game in the first period with what the team is calling a lower body injury. Jagr has had two different spells this year dealing with a groin injury and you’d have to assume that that’s what is giving him trouble yet again.

Both times Jagr returned from his previous groin injuries this season he came back ahead of schedule to play once again. The last time Jagr was hurt was during the Winter Classic against the Rangers. At 39-years-old Jagr is going to deal with nagging issues now and again, but if this injury is to his groin yet again this becomes more of a concern for the Flyers.

Jagr’s been teamed up with Scott Hartnell and Claude Giroux this season as one of the best lines in the league. They’ll have to put that show on hold yet again thanks to Jagr.

    Well, if the Flyers, or anyone else who’s signing Jagr on would have been paying attention, Jagr has had chronic groin problems since as far back as the Penguins when he was a much younger man. He hurt his groin (I believe) the first time in 1994 & it continued to plague him throughout his time with them and the Caps. He tried bicycle riding pants & all sorts of things to enable him to play, often returning before he was 100% ready to.
