After three seasons in the KHL, Jaromir Jagr could be ready to return to the National Hockey League.

According to reports on MLive.com and the Detroit Free Press on Thursday, Jagr's agent Petr Svoboda has put out feelers to five NHL teams - the Red Wings, Pittsburgh Penguins, Washington Capitals, New York Rangers and Montreal Canadiens - about the possibility of the future Hall of Famer signing on as a free agent.

Jagr has not played in the NHL since 2007-08, opting to join Avangard Omsk of the Kontinental Hockey League. He scored 19 goals and 50 points in 49 games last season.

The 39-year-old established himself as one of the NHL's premier talents during the 1990's, winning Stanley Cups with the Penguins in each of his first two seasons and capturing the Hart Trophy in 1999.

The five-time Art Ross Trophy winner has 646 goals and 1,599 points in 17 NHL seasons with Pittsburgh, Washington and the Rangers.
