41-year-old winger Jaromir Jagr is interested in joining the Montreal Canadiens.
Jagr's agent, Petr Svoboda, had this to say regarding his client:
“Jaromir always wanted play in Montreal,” insisted Svoboda. “We discussed with [CEO] Marc Bergevin yesterday. The interest is mutual, but the decision is now up to the Canadiens.”
In 45 games last season the Kladno native recorded 16 goals and 19 assists.
