Jaromir Jagr is a veteran of 21 NHL seasons – and of four NHL work stoppages, too. During the 1994-95 lockout, Jagr played 11 games with his hometown of Kladno in the Czech League, as well as one-game stints in Italy and Germany. His single game with the Schalker Sharks in the German League was definitely his most notable during the lockout, as Jagr had one goal and 10 assists that game. His 11 points put him ahead of six of the team’s regular players in scoring, while his one game in the league was enough of an excuse to include him in the league’s 1994-95 trading card set.
