Report - Jaromir Jagr preparing for a return to the NHL for one final season

Published August 11, 2023 at 9:46

When you talk about National Hockey League legends, near the top of the list has to be Jaromir Jagr. At 51 years old, it's beyond impressive he's still able to play hockey in Czechia, but could he be gearing up for a return to the NHL.

A few days ago, a rumour had started that he was in Pittsburgh and I think many assumed he would sign a one day contract with the Penguins so he could officially retire as a member of the team, but there were rumblings he could be signing a one year deal worth league minimum, recently a photo has circulated showing Jagr training with Kris Letang and it doesn't look like he's ready to retire just yet; take a look.

Dubas have confirmed that he is in late- stage negotiations to sign former Penguin Jaromir Jagr to a 1 year league-minimum deal.

If Jagr is going to return to the NHL at 51 years old, not only would that be one of the greatest feats ever especially given how the game has evolved today, but it would be in line with how Dubas likes to operate his roster (see Joe Thornton in Toronto)

While this could be less than what it looks like, it certainly isn't nothing. It'll be interesting to see how this all shakes out as the off-season begins to wind down.
