    Hockey hair wanted: Panthers hosting ‘Mullet Night’ in search of newest Travelling Jagr

    When Jaromir Jagr was traded from the New Jersey Devils to the Florida Panthers, the biggest question wasn’t who he would line up alongside or if he had any intention of re-signing in Florida. Rather, people wondered how long it would take for a new Travelling Jagr to pop up.

    For those unfamiliar with the Travelling Jagrs, they’re a group of huge Jagr fans that have shown up on a number of occasions dressed as their hero through the years. From a mulleted version of youthful Jagr as a member of the Penguins to a lookalike of Jagr during his short stint in Dallas, there’s a Travelling Jagr for each of his stops. There isn’t, however, one for Florida – at least not yet.

    Florida announced Tuesday that before their Thursday night home game against the Carolina Hurricanes, the Travelling Jagrs will be holding a tryout for their newest member. The new Jagr, a ‘Non-Travelling Jagr’ according to the Panthers, will take up residence at the BB&T Center for Florida’s home games. The evening will also be dubbed “Mullet Night in Sunrise.” ... ling-jagr/
