At 51-years old, many people are shocked that Jaromir Jagr can still compete at a high level overseas, so this latest report will come as a shock to everyone.

A return incoming?


Since leaving the NHL at the conclusion of the 2018 season, rumours have always surfaced about a potential Jagr return to the NHL, but now we've got our most concrete report in years.

According to this report, GM Kyle Dubas is in 'late stage negotiations' to bring back Jagr to the Penguins on a one-year deal, and whether or not that's simply to retire a Penguin or to be a genuine member of this lineup, it's a wild one.

An illustrious career

Jagr's NHL career began with Pittsburgh way back in 1990 when he was the No. 1 overall pick, and since that point, he's played over 30 seasons of professional hockey, astounding fans with each and every one.

At the NHL level, Jagr has played in 1,733 games, tallying an incredible 766 goals and 1,921 points, putting him second all-time behind Wayne Gretzky, and it's safe to say that if he returned, it would be an incredible story.
