The Bruins have traded for NHL legend Jaromir Jagr.
In exchange, the Bruins will send Dallas a conditional second-round pick (which becomes a first-rounder if the B’s reach the Eastern Conference Finals) and young players Lane MacDermid and Cody Payne.
The 41-year-old Jagr has 14 goals and 12 assists in 34 games this season for the Stars.
He played last season with the Flyers and the previous three in the KHL. Before that, Jagr was a star for more than a decade while with the Penguins and Rangers.
Milan Lucic, like many of the Bruins, grew up idolizing Jagr, and now he gets to play with him. Furthermore, Lucic posted a photo of him with Jagr when he was a little kid. Jagr looks young himself, sporting a mullet.
What do you think of the trade?
