DETROIT (AP) - Jaromir Jagr would like to play in the NHL next season.

Petr Svoboda, Jagr's agent, said Tuesday that he has been talking to the Detroit Red Wings and Pittsburgh Penguins. He declined to say whether he is talking with other teams about a one-year contract for the 39-year-old Jagr.

The Czech star hasn't played in the NHL since the 2007-08 season with the New York Rangers. He left the league to play for Avangard Omsk in Russia.

Jagr was the NHL MVP in 1999, a five-time scoring champion and two-time Stanley Cup winner while he was with the Penguins. He also played for Washington.
