Jagr may play against Kings but Gulutzan said decision won’t be announced until game day

LOS ANGELES – Following Jaromir Jagr’s fifth practice with the Flames, head coach Glen Gulutzan was tight-lipped about the veteran’s status heading into tomorrow’s game against the Kings.

“I’ll let you guys know tomorrow,” he said after the team’s up-tempo skate Tuesday afternoon at the Toyota Sports Center in El Segundo. “We have a plan of what we want to do. I’ll let you know tomorrow.”

Jagr skated alongside Kris Versteeg and Sam Bennett in practice, indicating he could be close to making his Flames debut, but he will determine when he’s ready to get back into games.

The veteran winger has been very open about needing to get back in game shape before he enters the lineup and won’t push himself into action before he’s ready.

The Flames close out their Southern California road trip on Wednesday night when they take on the Kings at 8:30 p.m. (TV: Sportsnet West; Radio: Sportsnet 960 The FAN).
