Jaromir Jagr's agent spoke with Penguins general manager Ray Shero yesterday about Jagr returning to the Penguins and plans to do so again soon.
"We talked yesterday and we will talk again today," said Petr Svoboda, the former NHL defenseman who represents Jagr.
Asked if he believes the Penguins are serious about trying to work out a deal with Jagr, Svoboda said. "I really believed it was serious when I made the phone call. We will know a lot more today."
He suggested that Jagr, 39, will decide where he wants to play within the next few days.
The Penguins, Detroit and an unidentified club are reportedly the ones he is considering, although Detroit is the only one to publicly acknowledge that it would like to sign him.
Asked if Jagr has a front-runner, Svoboda said, "I don't want to say he has one team in particular" that he would like to sign with.
Shero has declined to discuss recent developments in the Jagr situation.
