Stars sign Jaromir Jagr to 1-year, $4.55M deal

Jaromir Jagr has signed a one-year, $4.55 million contract with the Dallas Stars.

Jagr, 40, spent last season with Philadelphia Flyers, scoring 19 goals and 54 points. He is the latest acquisition in what already has been a busy offseason for the Stars, who also have added Derek Roy, Ray Whitney and Aaron Rome.

"Jaromir Jagr is, without a doubt, one of the best players in the history of this league, and he demonstrated last season that he remains incredibly skilled, productive and valuable," Stars general manager Joe Nieuwendyk said. "We see him fitting into our top two lines and contributing heavily to our offensive attack. We're very excited about adding a player of Jaromir's caliber to our club."
