Jagr's agent, former NHL player Petr Svoboda, said Thursday that his player's "heart is in Pittsburgh," the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. But it remains to be seen if that is enough for him to accept the team's offer of one year and about $2 million that was made Tuesday.
"Petr said we're very much in the mix," Penguins general manager Ray Shero said, the Tribune-Review reports.
Jagr has spent the last three seasons playing in the Kontinental Hockey League.
