Jaromir Jagr has agreed to join the New Jersey Devils on a one-year deal, according to ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun.

The deal isn’t expected to be officially announced until tomorrow; however, it should come as no surprise after it was reported this weekend that the 41-year-old forward was “99 percent” certain to sign with the Devils.

No financial details have been reported. Jagr’s made $4.5 million (prorated) in 2013.

If he does indeed sign, the Devils will be Jagr’s seventh NHL team. New Jersey will obviously be hoping he can help replace the departed Ilya Kovalchuk.
