JAGR WANTS TO HEAL BEFORE DETERMINING FUTURE

Jaromir Jagr’s days with the Calgary Flames are coming to an end, but he isn’t prepared to leave the team until he heals up from what appears to be multiple injuries.
During Tuesday night’s “Insider Trading” segment on TSN, TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger reported the Flames could try to trade Jagr, but there does not appear to be much of a market for him, presently.
By all accounts, Jagr wants to continue his playing career, rather than hang up his skates, but that no longer appears to be happening with the Flames, and the two sides could ultimately agree to terminate his contract and part ways.
“He first wants to get healthy, and then determine what his playing future is,” Dreger said during the segment.
Dreger noted “that might take some time” before Jagr’s healed up, so it’s unclear when a decision regarding his next stop will be.
Jagr, 45, has played in 22 games with the Flames this season, registering one goal and six assists.
On Saturday, during Hockey Night in Canada’s “Headlines” segment, Elliotte Friedman reported the Flames had granted Jagr’s agent permission to speak with other teams about finding him a new home.
