Jaromir Jagr's agent said that there will be an announcement on Oct. 5th regarding where his client will play.
Jagr might end up starting the season overseas, which would open the door for him to participate in the Olympics. It's still possible that he'll play in the NHL this season. Even at the age of 45 he still can contribute as illustrated by him scoring 16 goals and 46 points in 82 contests last season with Florida. Sep 21 - 12:07 PM

Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman wouldn't be surprised if Jaromir Jagr started the year playing overseas.

In that scenario, Jagr could participate in the Olympics and then end up back in the NHL afterward. Friedman also mentioned that Arizona is believed to be one of the teams that has contacted Jagr.

Jonathan Huberdeau spoke highly of the influence Jaromir Jagr had on him and the Panthers' young players during his tenure with the team.

"I remember when he came in, I wasn't sure what to expect with a player like Jagr, a legend," Huberdeau said. "Would he care about us, the young guys. But, he did. He helped us and he gave us confidence too. Me and Barkov, playing with him, he told us we were really good players and we had to play the way we can play and to our potential. He helped us with the work ethic too. At the end of practice, he would make us skate again. It's cool to see a guy that is 45 and he can still do that." The Panthers decided not to re-sign Jagr, but it wouldn't be surprising to see a team ink him to a one-year deal before the season starts. He had 16 goals and 46 points in 82 contests last season and, as Huberdeau noted, would provide a veteran presence that might help the younger members of a team.

Flames GM Brad Treliving says his team's reported interest in Jaromir Jagr and Jarome Iginla is nothing more than rumors at this point.

"I don’t know where all this talk comes from — we certainly never made a statement saying we’re looking at so-and-so," said Treliving. "Both are Hall of Famers. Nobody has done more as a player in Calgary than Jarome Iginla. You can’t help but respect them. But this notion we’ve been in contract talks with them is rumor and I’m not going to comment on them. I wouldn’t say there’s anything significant on the horizon, but we look at everything every day." It's one thing for Treliving to say he won't comment on rumors, but he never denied his team's interest in either player.

Jaromir Jagr's agent, Petr Svoboda, says he's working "around the clock" to get his client a new deal.

Svoboda added that he "will get something done" for his client. Jagr has had a hard time finding a new team since the Panthers allowed him to walk in free agency. There have been rumblings about the Flames being interested in his services, but nothing has come from that yet. The 45-year-old had 16 goals and 46 points in 82 games with Florida last season. Jagr has been remarkably productive for his age, but his lack of pace on the ice is scaring teams off.

The Calgary Flames are reportedly considering signing Jaromir Jagr, according to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman.

Friedman dropped this bit of news during an interview on NHL Network. The obvious connection between Jagr and the Flames, is that he was coached by Calgary head coach Glen Gulutzan when both were in Dallas during the 2012-13 season. Jagr, 45, is still looking for work since the Panthers decided not to bring him back into the fold. He had 16 goals and 46 points in 82 games last season.

The Los Angeles Kings don't seem to be interested in free agent Jaromir Jagr.

"Obviously [Jagr] is a tremendous player, been a tremendous player for a number of years, a [future] Hall of Famer," said Kings GM Rob Blake. "We've looked at lot of different free agents in the summer and where it fits in in our projections. … There was also the equation of the salary cap and how things fit in. We didn't go in the direction of Jagr this year. But again, he's a tremendous player and I'm sure he'll surface somewhere."

Jaromir Jagr said he "didn't expect it would be so hard to get a job in the NHL this year."

"I leave it all on my agent [Petr Svoboda]," Jagr said. "There is a couple of [NHL] teams that showed interest, but nothing specific yet." The 45-year-old accounted for 46 points (16 goals, 30 assists) in 82 games with the Florida Panthers last season. Jagr is unsure if he will be playing for Kladno, in the KHL or in the NHL this season. He wants to fit into the right situation and still be able to play a meaningful role in the NHL. Jagr also isn't opposed to joining an NHL team after the season starts if it comes to that.
Aug 10 - 9:09 AM

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.

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.
Jul 11 - 10:30 AM

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.
Jul 1 - 5:13 PM

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.
