Jaromir Jagr is now a Boston Bruin. Image Credit: Jerome Miron, USA Today Before signing with the Dallas Stars prior to the 2013 season, Jaromir Jagr had never played for a Western Conference team. His stay didn’t last long. After only 34 games with the Stars, he was dealt back to the Eastern Conference, in a trade that will send the 41-year-old right wing to the Boston Bruins in exchange for two prospects and a draft pick, according to ESPN. The prospects and the pick have yet to be disclosed, and such information will be updated as it becomes available. Dallas’ fading playoff hopes, following a 4-0 drubbing at the hands of the Anaheim Ducks that left the Stars in 10th place in the West, was a likely motivating factor in the trade. This move comes shortly after the Stars traded away Brenden Morrow and Derek Roy, strongly indicating that the Stars are entering a serious rebuilding mode. With Jagr, the Bruins get the veteran scoring forward they thought they had gotten in Jarome Iginla, before a late-night decision by Iginla sent him to the Pittsburgh Penguins. Jagr was the Stars’ leading scorer this season, having notched 14 goals and 26 points. He is eighth all-time in total points with 1,679, and 10th all-time in goal scoring with 679.
