The Pittsburgh Penguins have located the reportedly stolen Jaromir Jagr bobbleheads and have announced new arrangements for their distribution. Initially reported as stolen on March 14, much to the dismay of Penguins fans who had anticipated receiving them at the game against the San Jose Sharks, the bobbleheads were set to be distributed before the game but had to be rescheduled due to the entire shipment being stolen.

Instead, the bobbleheads will now be given out before the April 6 matchup against the Tampa Bay Lightning. Fans holding bobblehead vouchers from the March 14 game can redeem them on April 6-7.

A “special cargo recovery team” successfully negotiated the safe retrieval of the mini Jagrs from a secure warehouse in Ontario, California. Speculations have arisen regarding whether the reported bobblehead theft was genuine or part of a larger PR strategy.

If this incident turns out to be a PR tactic, it would be considered one of the most notable in NHL history, given the extensive discussions among hockey media and fans since mid-March. The Penguins, facing challenges this year, are seeking positive PR opportunities. Regardless of whether it was intentional or not, the Penguins’ tribute to Jaromir Jagr on February 18 was highly praised and deemed a successful event.

Currently, the Penguins are trailing by nine points for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, holding a record of 30-30-10. With only 12 games left in the season, their playoff chances hinge on winning all remaining games, yet even that wouldn’t assure them of a playoff berth.

This marks the second consecutive season that the Penguins will miss the playoffs, prompting discussions about the team’s future and particularly, the future of Sidney Crosby.
