When the NHL free agent market opened Sunday, Jaromir Jagr's agent said his client received 21 offers. On Tuesday, Jagr chose the one he liked best.
Jagr, 40, agreed to a one-year, 4.5 million contract with the Dallas Stars. He is coming off a 54-point (19 goals, 35 assists) season with the Flyers.
The NHL's eighth-highest career scorer, Jagr has 1,653 points to lead all European-born players in league history.
Jagr was selected fifth overall by the Pittsburgh Penguins in the 1990 NHL Entry Draft. Throughout his career, he's won two Stanley Cups, the 1999 Hart Trophy, five Art Ross Trophies, three Pearson Awards and has been named a First Team All-Star seven times.
This is the latest move of a busy offseason so far for the Stars. On Monday, they acquired center Derek Roy from the Buffalo Sabres for Steve Ott and Adam Pardy. They also traded Mike Ribeiro to the Washington Capitals at the 2012 draft and let defenseman Sheldon Souray leave for the Anaheim Ducks.
