Trade: Jagr goes to the Bruins

It’s official: Jaromir Jagr has been traded by the Dallas Stars to the Boston Bruins.

The deal was first reported by Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News.

In return, Dallas will receive forward prospects Lane MacDermid and Cody Payne. (Neither of whom is rated especially highly.)

The Stars will also receive a conditional second-round pick. (If the Bruins win two playoff series, the pick becomes a first-rounder.)

The Bruins have been pushing hard to acquire a top-six winger. Last week, they thought they had a deal for Jarome Iginla, but the former Flames captain ended up in Pittsburgh.

Much of the desire to add a forward of Jagr’s caliber had been due to the struggles of wingers Nathan Horton and Milan Lucic, though both those players have shown signs of offensive life in the past few games.

Jagr has 14 goals and 12 assists in 34 games. The 41-year-old is a pending unrestricted free agent.

The Stars also traded center Derek Roy to Vancouver today.
