In a potential move to solidify their front office, the Pittsburgh Penguins are reportedly eyeing the return of a franchise legend.

According to a report from Josh Yohe of The Athletic, the Penguins are keen on bringing Jaromir Jagr back into the NHL fold. Jagr, whose illustrious career saw him briefly don the Calgary Flames jersey in 2017-18, could mark his return to the league in a new capacity.
Yohe hinted at the Penguins' interest in Jagr in his recent column, responding to a fan's query about the legendary player's potential role. "The Penguins want Jagr to be an employee moving forward," Yohe stated, emphasizing the value of Jagr's hockey wisdom.
Jagr's remarkable career boasts 1,921 points in the NHL, a record for any European-born player. He holds a special place in Penguins' history, ranking second in franchise points behind only Mario Lemieux. The Penguins recently honored Jagr by retiring his iconic No. 68 jersey, an emotional moment celebrated at PPG Paints Arena.
During his heartfelt speech at the jersey retirement ceremony on February 18, Jagr expressed gratitude for the memorable weekend festivities. He fondly recalled practicing with the team and shared heartfelt moments with former teammates. Jagr's presence on the ice during practice and warmups with the Penguins reflected the enduring bond between the legendary player and the organization.
