Jaromir Jagr skated with his hometown team Kladno recently, but is still hoping to sign with an NHL team at some point.
"I don't think I am so bad that I couldn't play there," Jagr told Czech hockey writer Zdenek Janda. He didn't fit into Florida's plans anymore and so he is available as an unrestricted free agent. The 45-year-old winger registered 16 goals and 30 assists in 82 games last season. Jul 24 - 1:59 PM

The ECHL's Florida Everblades have offered Jaromir Jagr a roster spot.

"We believe this deal makes sense for both sides," said Everblades Public Relations Manager & Broadcaster Alex Reed. "Jaromir will have the opportunity to continue to play the game that he loves, while remaining in the tropical paradise of South Florida. From the team side, well that’s obvious. Just imagine watching number 68 skate on Germain Arena ice, with his long hair flowing behind him. The whole thing just gives us chills." The Everblades have also stated that they're willing to have him suit up in only their weekend home games if that's more convenient for him. It's a nice story, but don't expect Jagr to play in the ECHL at all next season.

As expected, the Florida Panthers are moving forward without Jaromir Jagr.

"It was honored to be touched by a legend... I can't thank him enough... it's time for our young guys take over," Panthers GM Dale Tallon said in reference to Jagr. The 45-year-old forward still wants to play so he'll be looking for work elsewhere. He can still contribute offensively as he had 16 goals and 46 points in 82 games in 2016-17, but his speed is an issue at this point, which limits his effectiveness outside of the power play.

Jaromir Jagr "very likely" won't be back with the Florida Panthers next season, according to TSN's Darren Dreger.

Jagr scored a respectable 16 goals and 46 points in 82 games last season, but his lack of foot speed is a bit of problem at this point. The 45-year-old can still contribute, but he'll likely need to serve as a third-liner/power play specialist with his next team. Half of Jagr's 16 goals were scored on the man-advantage last season. It'll be interesting to see when and where he signs this off-season.
Jul 1 - 9:49 AM

Jaromir Jagr and the Florida Panthers appear to be in a holding pattern.

As previously mentioned, Jagr tweeted Thursday night that he hasn't gotten any calls from general managers about a potential signing. There also was a fan event Thursday night, which Panthers GM Dale Tallon attended and the subject of Jagr naturally came up. Tallon gave the answer he's provided before, "I talked to his agent on a regular basis, Petr Svoboda, almost every day. I talked to him today; we’ll talk tomorrow." Jagr earned $5.5 million in 2016-17 when his bonuses are included and it's believed that the Panthers don't want to pay him that amount again. We'll have to see if the two sides reach a compromise or if another team enters the picture at some point.
Jun 30 - 4:27 AM

Jaromir Jagr says he's having a hard time getting teams to give him a call ahead of free agency on July 1st.

Jagr tweeted about how other potential free agents are getting calls from dozens of teams, but he still hasn't heard from anyone. He had 16 goals and 46 points in 82 games last season. The biggest reason teams aren't calling is likely because of his age. It's only normal that teams aren't lining up to sign a 45-year-old winger. It'll be interesting to see where he lands. No matter who signs him, expect it to be for just one year.
Jun 29 - 10:38 PM

Florida GM Dale Tallon spoke to Jaromir Jagr's agent, Petr Svoboda, on Tuesday and expects to talk to him again on Wednesday.

Jagr can become an unrestricted free agent on Saturday. "We'll have a meeting with the coaches and try to put the team together and see where we're going and what might we add on July 1 (the first day of free agency) and who in this camp might play on our team or not," Tallon said. "We're still talking, still negotiating." The 45-year-old veteran winger posted 16 goals and 46 points in 82 games last season.
Jun 28 - 9:12 AM

Florida GM Dale Tallon plans to engage in contract negotiations with Jaromir Jagr's camp in the next few days.

Tallon was waiting until after the expansion draft to attempt to re-sign Jagr. Despite being 45-years-old, Jagr scored 16 goals and 46 points in 82 contests in 2016-17.
Jun 22 - 6:07 PM

Florida GM Dale Tallon said that a potential Jaromir Jagr signing won't occur until after the expansion draft.

Tallon has been speaking with Jagr's agent, Petr Svoboda, about a return for at least one more season. The veteran winger can become an unrestricted free agent on July 1.
Jun 13 - 11:03 AM

The Florida Panthers and Jaromir Jagr have been engaged in ongoing contract talks.

Jagr is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent this summer. He's spent parts of the last three seasons with Florida and even though he's 45 years old at this point, he still scored 16 goals and 46 points in 82 contests last season. So if the Panthers ultimately decide not to sign it, there's a decent chance another team will sign him instead. If Florida is going to sign him though, it will probably happen after the expansion draft.
Jun 5 - 4:36 PM

Speaking to Sportsnet, Florida Panthers GM Dale Tallon revealed he is expected to meet with Jaromir Jagr's agent at the upcoming World Hockey Championships.

Tallon also added that he is optimistic that he can get Jagr back to Florida for at least one more season. It's encouraging news considering Jagr didn't seem too optimistic himself about his chances of returning to the Panthers at the conclusion of the season.
Apr 29 - 5:37 PM

Jaromir Jagr didn't seem overly optimistic about his chances of returning to the Florida Panthers for his 24th NHL season.

"I don't want to talk about anything," said Jagr, 45, who ranks second on the NHL all-time list in points (1,914), third in goals (765), fifth in assists (1,149) and fourth in games played (1,711). "Just wait and see and whatever happens, happens. Of course, there's going to be some kind of changes. That's what the owners want and it's already starting." He played in all 82 games this season and recorded 46 points. That is 20 fewer than the total he accumulated during his first full season with the Panthers. Depending on the situation he finds himself in next season, he will likely still warrant fantasy consideration.
Apr 11 - 7:09 PM

Jaromir Jagr skated in all 82 games in 2016-17.

It marked the first time that Jagr has appeared in every game since the 2013-14 season when he was a member of the Devils. The 45-year-old winger contributed 16 goals and 30 assists this campaign.
Apr 10 - 9:15 AM

Jaromir Jagr will wait until the end of this season before he decides on his future.

"The way I look at it, we're already playing for the future right now. I love the game, still want to be better every day I step on the ice. Nothing has changed in the 20-something years I have played hockey," said Jagr. "The drive is still there, in my mind, I still believe I can get better. We'll wait and see what happens." He added that he still loves playing in Florida, so it's possible that he could be back with the Panthers next year. The 45-year-old winger is eligible for unrestricted free agency in the summer.
Apr 3 - 5:44 PM

Jaromir Jagr scored his 16th goal of the season during Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Bruins.

Remarkably, it's the 43rd point of his campaign as well through 78 games. And in case you were wondering, he's now up to 1,911 career points.
