Jaromir Jagr is set to join his fourth team since returning to the NHL in 2011-12.

According to TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.com, the 41-year-old has agreed to a one-year  deal with the New Jersey Devils.  The deal is expected to be announced on Tuesday.

Jagr returned to the league two years ago with the Philadelphia Flyers before signing a one-year, $4.5 million deal with the Stars last season. The Stars traded Jagr to the Bruins prior to the deadline and Jagr helped Boston reach the Stanley Cup Final.

The veteran forward posted 16 goals and 35 points in 45 games played last season, adding 10 assists in 22 playoff appearances for the Bruins. 

Jagr has played in 19 NHL seasons in his career. The 1998-99 Hart Trophy winner has two Stanley Cup victories, five Art Ross Trophies, and three Lester B. Pearson Awards. Jagr is also a seven-time First Team All-Star.

Jagr has only missed the playoffs in two of his 19 seasons.
