Report: Flames working on immigration issues with Jagr

Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

It might be a few days before Jaromir Jagr finally dons a Calgary Flames jersey.

The team is currently trying to sort out issues with immigration and Jagr is not expected to arrive in Calgary until Wednesday, with an official announcement on the deal potentially being delayed, according to The Athletic's Pierre LeBrun.

On Monday it was reported that Jagr has signed a one-year deal with the Flames that will pay him $1 million in base salary with another potential $1 million in bonuses.

If Jagr's arrival is delayed until Wednesday, there is a good chance he misses the Flames' opening game against the Edmonton Oilers that night.
