Jaromir Jagr’s agent, Petr Svoboda, is not at the NHL draft this weekend in St. Paul, Minn., which means no negotiations will take place with Penguins general manager Ray Shero. It was originally believed that Svoboda would be in St. Paul to meet with the Penguins and Red Wings.
Currently the NHL’s hottest story, Jagr’s destination for next season will remain a mystery for a while. He can’t sign with any NHL team until at least July 1.
The Penguins and Red Wings remain interested in his services.
