Sport-planet.ru is reporting that Czech superstar Jaromir Jagr has signed a new two year contract with Avangard Omsk of the KHL.  Citing “reliable sources” the article claims “Czech forward Jaromir Jagr has decided to remain with Avangard Omsk for two more seasons.  The sum of the agreement was not disclosed, but it will most likely be less than under the previous contract.”
