The Pittsburgh Penguins are set for an incredible night tonight as they take on the Los Angeles Kings. With Jaromir Jagr in the building to be honored the energy feels different and could lead to a major boost according to people within the team.

Penguins Players Ecstatic To Play In Front Of Jagr



Sometimes when a person becomes a professional athlete we as fans and spectators forget they were once fans too. Tonight's return of Jaromir Jagr has been a great reminder of that. Look no further than a quote from Bryan Rust who admits having Jagr around has made the game special and fun.

«Just like with any job, (a routine) can get a little bit monotonous So to get a little bit of something new, I think there might be a little bit of a spark, might be a little bit more fun, might give a little bit more energy,» Bryan Rust said.



Beyond the excitement for the game and the ceremony tonight, players have engaged in fun all week to honor number 68.

Several Players Sport The Iconic Jagr Mullet



Other than being a world-class hockey player Jaromir Jagr has always been known for being able to grow a fantastic mullet. In the spirit of honor, Jagr several players went out and got mullet wigs to wear around the facility.

Kris Letang and Alex Nedeljkovic wore Jagr mullet wigs in practice warmup. Jagr was one of Letang's childhood idols. The Penguins defenseman, who will likely have his own commemorative weekend one day, didn't miss his chance to skate with Jagr and share a laugh.

Letang who wore 68 growing up as a nod to Jagr has been at the forefront of Penguins players making sure that the legend feels the impact he had.
