It appears Jaromir Jagr still has some gas left in the tank.

According to the Newark Star-Ledger, the 42-year-old Jagr is close to re-signing with the New Jersey Devils.

The report indicates it is a one-year deal worth in the neighbourhood of $5 million.

"The deal is very very close but it's not finalized yet," Jagr's agent Petr Svovoda told the Star-Ledger. "(Devils GM) Lou (Lamoriello) will let you know as soon as it's complete."

Jegr is slated to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1 but wants to stay in New Jersey.

"He loved his time there last year and that's where he wants to be," Svoboda added.
