Watch: Jason Zucker Imitates Jaromir Jagr Goal Celebration

Pittsburgh Penguins, Jason Zucker goal celebration, Jaromir Jagr

The Pittsburgh Penguins debuted their new reverse-retro jerseys against the Buffalo Sabres on Wednesday. The robo-penguin logo, which helped to define the 1990s and early 2000s Penguins era, returned to the front of the Penguins’ jerseys.

So did an old goal celebration.

About seven minutes into the game, Penguins center Evgeni Malkin stole the puck at the defensive blue line. Malkin dished to Jason Zucker during the two-on-one break that resulted.

Zucker ripped a one-timer past Buffalo goalie Eric Comrie for his second goal of the season. Then Zucker paid tribute to all-time Penguins (and NHL) great Jaromir Jagr by imitating Jagr’s famous salute goal celebration.

Jagr played with the Penguins from 1991 through 2001. He won two Stanley Cups and was the Penguins’ captain after Mario Lemieux’s first retirement in 1997 (Lemieux returned on Dec. 27, 2001). Over his 24-year NHL career, Jagr had 1,921 points and 766 goals.

First, here’s Zucker’s goal:

 

And here is the Mile High Salute from Jagr:
