Jagr Says First Game Back Was Rough.

Jaromir Jagr made is much anticipated debut with the Calgary Flames on Wednesday night.

The forward 45 years old hadn't played any preseason games and didn't exactly look like a stud out on the ice.

Jagr played about 15 minutes and was a -1 and didn't register a shot or any points. After the game, he wasn't shy to be honest about how his first game with the Canadian franchise went.

"I didn't feel very well," Jagr said, according to Lisa Dillman of NHL.com. "But, I expect that. I'm glad it's behind me, so hopefully next game I feel better ... After my legs come back, it's going to be a little bit different."

"I didn't play for five, six months," he said. "And I'm 45."

We're sure things will pick up for Jagr who hasn't played since April of last year finishing his season with the Florida Panthers registering 46 points.

He'll have to wait two more days to try and get his legs back as the Flames take on the Ottawa Senators on Friday night.
