From Mike G. Morreale at NHL.com:
Following a three-year stint with Avangard Omsk in the Kontinental Hockey League, the Flyers signed Jagr to a one-year deal worth $3.3 million on July 1.
“I just want (to use this time to) getting used to the North American rinks (again),” Jagr told the media in Detroit on Friday. “The North American game and European game are two totally different games with the same rules. You have to skate a lot more, skate differently and you cannot be that aggressive. Most of the teams play the trap (in the NHL), and it’s more aggressive in Europe.”
