Jaromir Jagr No Longer With Panthers

     The Florida Panthers have made a decision not to offer a new contract to right wing Jaromir Jagr. He is a unrestricted free agent and can sign with any NHL team as of July 1.
     Jagr played the last three seasons with the Florida Panthers. He helped the club capture the Atlantic Division title in 2015-16 as he compiled 27 goals and 39 points in 81 games. Jagr played all 82 games last season and put together 16 goals and 30 assists. He was acquired by Florida from the New Jersey Devils in the later portion of the 2014-15 season.
     It has been a memorable reign for Jagr while he played for the Panthers. Jagr climbed up the all-time lists in NHL history. He passed Phil Esposito, Marcel Dionne and Brett Hull in goals and now has 765 career goals for third all-time. He surpassed Ron Francis, Gordie Howe and Mark Messier in career points and now stands behind Wayne Gretzky for second all-time with 1,914 points.
