Jaromir Jagr is a Czech right winger on Avangard Omsk.

Jagr was orginally drafted 5th overall by the Pittsburgh Penguinsafter putting up 22 goals and 40 points in his second season of senior pro hockey with HC Kladno. He was an immediate force in the NHL, playing alongside Mario Lemieux and giving the Penguins one of the most dangerous combinations in the league. He had 27 goals and 57 points his rookie year, and helped the Pens win back to back Stanley Cups in 1991 and 1992. He was the youngest player to score a goal in the Cup Finals in NHL history at age 19. He won an Art Ross Trophy during the lockout-shortened season scoring 70 points, and set NHL records the following year for right wingers, scoring career highs with 62 goals, 87 assists and 149 points. He was named team captain in 1998, and won four straight scoring titles with the Penguins through 2001, as well as winning the league MVP and Most Outstanding Player awards in 1999.

After some controversy regarding his relationship with the Pittsburgh coaching staff, Jagr was traded to Washington in 2001, where he never managed to put up the type of numbers he had with the Penguins. He was traded to the New York Rangers in 2004, where he had another career year in 2005-06, scoring 123 points, the fifth time in his career that he broke the 100-point plateua. He played two more years with the Rangers before opting to sign with Avangard Omsk in 2008. At the end of his NHL career, Jagr had 646 goals and 953 assists for 1599 points in 1273 games. He also had 907 penalty minutes.

Along with his Stanley Cup victories with the Penguins, Jagr earned his way into the exclusive Triple Gold Club with gold medal wins at the 1998 Olympics, 2005 and 2010 World Championships. He also won bronze medals at the 2006 Olympics, 1990 World Juniors and 1990 World Championships. He has a total of 69 points in 74 senior international games.
