Agent: Jaromir Jagr wants to return to Philadelphia Flyers
Jaromir Jagr apparently has had a change of heart. Four weeks ago Jagr complained about his role on the Philadelphia Flyers and was noncommittal about returning to the club, but his agent, longtime defenseman Petr Svoboda, told Tim Panaccio of CSNPhilly.com on Wednesday that Jagr wants to remain a Flyer, and that the two sides are working on another one-year deal.
“I’ve talked to Jaromir and I have talked to Paul [Holmgren, the Philadelphia general manager] and we hope to get something done before the draft,” Svoboda told Panaccio. Jagr, 40, had 54 points (third on the team) in his return to the NHL after three seasons in Russia.
