Jagr is seriously considering a return to the NHL, and Detroit and Montreal seem to be the two front-runners in trying to land the 39-year-old. Krejci, however, would love if his Bruins could sign the future Hall of Famer for a year.
“I would like it,” Krejci told ESPN Boston’s James Murphy. “I know he is getting a little older, but he’s such a big name and I love watching him play. So it would be nice if that happened.”
The two played together in the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. Since then, Jagr has continued to work toward a return to the NHL playing in the Russian K-League.
Although the Czech team didn’t bring home any hardware in 2010, Krejci’s latest trophy could persuade Jagr to join the boys on Causeway Street. After all, the Bruins can attest to the importance of having veteran guys with Cups under their belts.
