New Jersey Devils, Jaromir Jagr agree to deal

The New Jersey Devils and Jaromir Jagr have agreed to a one year contract. Initial speculation pegs the deal around the $4 million mark. Jagr played a big role in helping the Boston Bruins season last year. He struggled some what during the post season but he had 16 goals and 19 assists in 45 games last season. In the playoffs he struggled and recored only 10 assists in 22 post season games with Boston.

From ESPN.com:

The New Jersey Devils have agreed to terms on a one-year contract with right wing Jaromir Jagr, a source told ESPN.com.

Jagr, 41, will help New Jersey attempt to fill the massive void created when Ilya Kovalchuk stunningly elected to retire from the NHL and play in his native Russia’s Kontinental Hockey League.

From CBS Sports:

As of yet there is no word on the price of the contract but it will likely fall around the $4 million mark for the veteran. Jagr showed last season that he still has plenty of ability to play in the NHL. Before a postseason with the Bruins where he was snakebitten, Jagr had a very good regular season with 16 goals and 19 assists in 45 games between Dallas and Boston.
