Bruins get Jaromir Jagr from Stars hoping to help offence with 10th leading career goal scorer

BOSTON - The Boston Bruins have acquired Jaromir Jagr from the Dallas Stars in an attempt to improve their shaky offence.

The 10th leading goal scorer in NHL history, who leads the Stars in points this season, Jagr was traded Tuesday for two prospects, forwards Lane MacDermid and Cody Payne, and a conditional second-round pick in this year's draft, the Stars announced.

The deal came five days after the Bruins thought they obtained forward Jarome Iginla from the Calgary Flames, only to learn Iginla had been traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

In his first season with the Stars, the 41-year-old Jagr has 14 goals and 26 points. Brad Marchand leads the Bruins with 14 goals and Patrice Bergeron is first with 31 points. Jagr has 679 career goals.

Quote of the Day

I think I'm lucky to be here and you definitely don't take very many things for granted, if you take anything for granted. I definitely put my family and my wife and my close family in perspective, that they're the most important thing in the world. I want to do whatever I can to play hockey, but like I said, under the right circumstances.
