According to ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun, the Devils and free agent right wing Jaromir Jagr have agreed to terms on a one-year contract. Czech TV reporter Roman Jedlicka had reported a deal was close over the weekend.
The Bruins elected to let Jagr leave via free agency after trading a first-round pick, Lane MacDermid and Cody Payne to the Stars for him prior to the trade deadline. Jagr had two goals and seven assists for nine points in 11 regular-season games for the B’s, and he had a solid postseason performance despite not scoring (he had 10 assists) in 22 playoff games.
The Devils will become the 41-year-old Jagr’s seventh NHL team (Penguins, Capitals, Rangers, Flyers, Stars, Bruins) and fourth team in the last three seasons.
