Jaromir Jagr‘s Hall of Fame career will now include a stop in Boston, but the record will show that the tour of duty with the Bruins was a brief one. Jagr will not be returning to the Bruins next season, both he and general manager Peter Chiarelli revealed at the club’s break-up day Wednesday at TD Garden. According to Chiarelli, he broke the news to Jagr on Wednesday morning. The Bruins acquired the future Hall of Famer on the day of the NHL trade deadline, and he played a couple of months with the Bruins, his sixth NHL club. Jagr ended up playing 33 games with the Bruins including the playoffs, and he scored just two goals to go along with 17 assists. Despite the lack of scoring and tangible production, Chiarelli said he was pleased with the deal. “I told him that ‘What you did to wear a d down was very impressive. I know you didn’t score, but the timely plays that you made were terrific. I thought you spread out our play which helped our power play,’” Chiarelli said. “I was really happy with Jaromir.” Chiarelli also said the Bruins won’t be re-signing veterans Andrew Ference or Jay Pandolfo. The Bruins will take a wait-and-see approach with Wade Redden and Anton Khudobin.
