The NHL’s Most Epic Mullet May Be Returning To Pittsburgh
TSN reported Tuesday night that the Pittsburgh Penguins are offering a contract to former star Jaromír Jágr, the right winger who led the Pens to two consecutive Stanley Cup championships in the early 1990's.
Jágr, who last played in the NHL in 2008 and has spent the last three seasons with Siberian KHL team Avangard Omsk, is expected to respond to the offer Wednesday.
The Czech, known as much for his characteristic tresses as his five seasons as the NHL's scoring leader, can't officially sign until free agency opens on Friday. Penguins president Ray Shero told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that he didn't know if the veteran star had any other NHL offers, but
We feel from the information we have and after seeing at world championships, that he's a guy who might be able to help us this coming season," Shero said. "We feel he's a guy who could help us this year, and retire as a Penguin.
Shero did not divulge the financial details of the contract offer.
