The New Jersey Devils have agreed to terms on a one-year contract with right wing Jaromir Jagr, a source told ESPN.com.
Jagr, 41, will help New Jersey attempt to fill the massive void created when Ilya Kovalchuk stunningly elected to retire from the NHL and play in his native Russia's Kontinental Hockey League.
Jagr had 16 goals and 19 assists in 45 games for the Boston Bruins and Dallas Stars this past season. He recorded 10 assists in 22 playoff games with Boston.
