Jágr equals record number of NHL regular season games played by Czech

The ice hockey star Jaromír Jágr has equalled the record for the most NHL regular season games played by a Czech. Jágr’s appearance for New Jersey Devils on Tuesday was his 1,395th NHL regular season match, putting him on equal terms with defender Roman Hamrlík. The two are now 32nd overall in terms of number of games played but are the leaders among active players. Jágr, who is 41, scored for New Jersey in their defeat to Vancouver on Tuesday, as did his compatriot Patrik Eliáš.
