Jaromir Jagr talking to Montreal Canadiens

We know that Jaromir Jagr is going to play in the NHL during the 2013-14 season, we just don’t know where.

One team that seems to be emerging as a favorite, at least in Jagr’s eyes, is the Montreal Canadiens.

Jagr’s agent, Petr Svoboda, told TVA sports that he has been in contact with Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin and that the interest between the two sides is mutual, but that the decision is now up to the Canadiens.

Montreal managed to get an early start on free agency this past week when it agreed to terms with Danny Briere on a two-year, $8-million contract after he was bought out by the Philadelphia Flyers.

“Jaromir liked what he saw in Montreal this year,” Svoboda told TVA (translation via Sean Gentille), “He would like to contribute to their success.”
