Video: Jaromir Jagr scores in Bruins debut

Apr 4, 2013, 8:23 PM EDT

Boston Bruins fans welcomed Jaromir Jagr with a standing ovation and plenty of appreciation. The future Hall of Famer returned the favor by scoring his first goal in his first game in what some might call “Bruins style.”

In other words, it was a scrappy, ugly goal.

That’s not to say that Boston cannot score pretty ones – Jagr is likely to generate quite a few with current linemates Tyler Seguin and Brad Marchand – but many probably didn’t expect this kind of work from the 41-year-old.

(He even has a blocked shot as well on Thursday, another endearing figure on a team that clearly values two-way play.)

This marks the 680th goal of the Czech legend’s NHL career, by the way.

As a bonus, here’s video of the standing ovation:
