LOOK: Let's check in on Jaromir Jagr's mullet progress, shall we?
Jaromir Jagr is bringing back his world famous mullet. The Florida Panthers provided the latest update as the legendary 'do is making progress.
Earlier this year, The Legend Jaromir Jagr vowed to bring back the hair style that he made his own throughout the early 1990s. Yes, the mullet (henceforth referred to as The Mullet) is on the way back. It doesn’t have the puffiness of the original, but the 43-year-old Jagr is giving it a real go.
The last update came on Nov. 2, with Roberto Luongo – who himself vowed to do everything within his power to get Jagr to bring The Mullet back – providing a look at the evidence.
Now it’s Nov. 20, and The Legend’s hair is still growing. Forward Nick Bjugstad was there for the official measurement for The Mullet. It looks like we’ve got a good three inches below the neck line.
I don’t want to say it’s officially back yet, because we’re maybe two to three inches away right now, but we’re getting really close, folks.
Meanwhile, as Jagr’s hair continues to grow, he continues to be a marvel on the ice. He leads the Panthers with 15 points including seven goals. Aside from one four-game lull, he’s been pretty productive all season. Over his last five games, Jagr has seven points.
He continues closing in on some significant milestones as well.
Jagr is just two goals away from tying Los Angeles Kings great Marcel Dionne for fourth on the NHL’s all-time goal scoring list. No. 68 currently sits at 729 NHL goals. He even has a shot at finishing the year as the No. 3 all-time scorer. Brett Hull is the current holder of that spot with 741 goals.
It’s going to be a little tougher for Jagr to catch up to Gordie Howe on the all-time point scoring list, but that’s not outside the realm of possibility for this season either. Jagr trails Mr. Hockey by 33 points for third on the list behind Mark Messier and Wayne Gretzky.
Maybe The Mullet will bring Jagr even more strength and help him reach those lofty numbers this year. After all, he played his best hockey when the locks were flowing in the wind.
