DALLAS Jaromir Jagr has a new home after the Stars signed the five-time scoring champion and former league MVP to a $4.55 million, one-year contract Tuesday.
Dallas General Manager Joe Nieuwendyk said the 40-year-old Czech forward still has plenty to offer the franchise.
I dont think theres any question he still has game in the tank, Nieuwendyk said. He had a terrific season with Philadelphia (last year).
Dallas is bringing between 50 and 60 players to CenturyLink Arena in Downtown Boise for training camp, which will run Sept. 22-26. As part of that camp, the Stars will play an exhibition game against the Minnesota Wild on Sept. 25.
Dallas will have two practice sessions a day both open to the public. Those sessions are scheduled for Sept. 22-24, from 7 to 10 a.m. and noon to 2 p.m.
The exhibition game starts at 7:10 p.m. Tickets are on sale for $30 to $65, plus fees, and are available at the CenturyLink box office, by calling 208-331-8497 or visiting idahosteelheads.com.
Jagr had 19 goals and 54 points last year both career lows to rank third among Flyers players in scoring and had eight points in 11 playoff games.
In NHL history, he ranks first with 16 overtime goals, second with 114 game-winning goals, eighth with 1,653 points, 11th with 665 goals and 12th with 988 assists with Pittsburgh, Washington, the New York Rangers and Flyers. He is first in goals, assists and points among active players.
Jagr has won two Stanley Cups, two IIHF World Championships and one Olympic gold medal.
