When he was just six years old, Jaromir Jagr was enrolled by his father in three hockey leagues: one for six-year-olds, one for eight-year-olds, and another for ten-year-olds. Who was born in 1972 in Kladno, Czechoslovakia, soon had three dreams: to play for his city, to play for his country, and to play for the NHL the best hockey in the world!

By age 16, Jagr was playing for his hometown team. In 1990, he attended the NHL entry draft the first Czech player able to do so without defecting. Jagr was the first-round choice of the Pittsburgh Penguins and helped his team win two Stanley Cup championships (1991, 1992).
