Jaromir Jagr has made a deal with the Devils.

The 41-year old veteran has agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the New Jersey Devils, but an official announcement is not expected until Tuesday, according to Pierre LeBrun.

Jagr split the lockout-shortened season between the Dallas Stars and Boston Bruins, totaling 35 points in 45 games. He also added 10 points in 22 playoff games with the Bruins.

By joining the Devils, Jagr will have now played for five of the eight teams in the newly named Metropolitan Division. The Devils could use the help up front after Ilya Kovalchuck unexpectedly retired from the NHL earlier this month to return home and play in Russia.

Jagr will make his return to Boston on Saturday, Oct. 26 when the Bruins take on the Devils in one of three scheduled meetings between the two teams next season.
