Jaromir Jagr made a very surprising decision on his next NHL destination and inked a one year deal with the Dallas Stars.
Jagr agreed to a one year, $4.5 million deal with the Stars, a $1.2 million raise than what he earned last season with the Philadelphia Flyers.
The Stars have not made the Stanley Cup playoffs in four seasons, but has already been aggressive in the very early stages of the free agency period. The Stars have traded away some of their youth in order to pick up some veteran leadership in players like Ray Whitney and Jagr.
Jagr, 40, will be playing his first season in the Western Conference after spending the first 18 years of his NHL career playing in the Eastern Conference.
