Jaromir Jagr RW FLA 1 Hr
The Panthers are interested in re-signing Jagr, who will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, according to a report on NHL.com that cited the Miami Herald.
Kitties' general manager Dale Tallon confirmed he met with Jagr's agent in Montreal before his team took on the Habs; both parties agreed to wait until the offseason to continue discussions. Jagr said as recently as Friday that he was excited by the team's young talent and predicted they would be contending for a Cup within two years.

Jagr scored the 718th goal of his career -- but just his 13th of the season -- and added an assist Thursday in a 3-1 win over Detroit.
The goal untied him with the great Phil Esposito and sent Jagr into sole possession of fifth place on the all-time goals list. If he continues his career past this season, it's not impossible that he could pass fourth-place Marcel Dionne (731 goals) and third-place Brett Hull (741) before all's said and done, though at age 43, Jagr is clearly slowing down. That said, he does have seven points in nine games since joining the Panthers -- not bad for an old man.

Jagr didn't record a shot on goal, but handed out two assists and went plus-1 on Thursday against the Jets.
After totaling just 29 points and a minus-10 rating in 57 games for the Devils this season, Jagr's responded since being traded by picking up five points and a plus-2 rating in his first five games as a Panther. It's hard to expect the NHL's oldest player to keep it up, though.

Updating a previous note, Jagr will be in the lineup Saturday against the Islanders, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Jagr was considered questionable with the same illness that's passing through much of the Panthers' roster, but he's been given the green light shortly before Saturday's puck drop.

Jagr (illnesss) will not play Saturday against the Islanders, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
The veteran, who missed Thursday's game against the Stars, is one of the latest victims of the stomach flu making its way through the Panthers' locker room. He'll join Tomas Kopecky and Aaron Ekblad on the sideline Saturday.

Jagr (illness) will be a game-time decision for Saturday's tilt with the Islanders, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Jagr was scratched for Thursday's game against the Stars after falling victim to the stomach flu, a virus that has afflicted many in the Panthers' locker room of late. It seems as though the worst of the symptoms are behind him now, as he was able to take part in Saturday's morning skate. Jagr is generally expected to be cleared to play against the Islanders, but the Panthers will take a cautious approach and see how he progresses in the afternoon before making a declaration on his status one way or the other.

Jagr will miss Thursday's game against the Stars due to flu-like symptoms, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Jagr was a late scratch, joining defensemen Erik Gudbranson and Willie Mitchell, both of whom are also dealing with the flu. The Panthers have cancelled Friday's practice in hope of containing the spread of the illness.

Jagr registered a goal and an assist for his first two points with his new club in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Lightning.
Jagr had been on his coldest spell of the season as he failed to get on the scoresheet in his last eight games with the Devils and in his debut with the Panthers. The 43-year-old should see an uptick in his offensive production as he joins a playoff contending team, but he's put up just 20 points in 59 contests thus far.

Jagr will make his Panthers debut Saturday against the Predators, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
During pregame warmups, Jagr was spotted skating alongside Jonathan Huberdeau and Aleksander Barkov on what is projected to be the Panthers' second line. Jagr, who accumulated 11 goals and 29 points in 57 games with the Devils this season, also figures to see time on the power play in his debut with his new squad.

Jagr was traded to the Panthers on Thursday in exchange for a 2015 second-round pick and a 2016 third-round pick.
It was no secret that Jagr desired a trade to a contender, and while this probably isn't what he had in mind, the Panthers only trail the Bruins by two points for the Eastern Conference's wild-card spot. Now set to join his eighth NHL team, Jagr may be able to grab a top-six spot, after scoring 29 points (11 goals) in 57 games for the Devils this season.
