At 41 years old, Jaromir Jagr's got a few years on his Boston teammates. Heck, he's old enough to have been some of their childhood heroes, as evidenced by 27-year-old David Krejci naming the Czech icon as his favourite player growing up in CBC's pregame montage.
That was funny enough, but what really makes the clip, via Will Ackland, is when Jagr immediately follows Krejci and names his own favourite player: himself.
That Jagr's a badass. He should have ripped off his lapel mic and dropped it.
Let it never be said that Jaromir Jagr isn't a confident man. Apparently, he was a confident child as well.
In Jagr's defence, who would he have named as his favourite player anyway? When hockey was invented, he was nine.
- Jaromir Jagr
- David Krejci
