Len Redkoles/NHLI via Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Jaromir Jagr is not done. The 40-year-old winger signed a one-year $4.55 million contract with the Dallas Stars.

“I want to thank Dallas Stars for giving me the opportunity. Say hallo to my new teammates and fans,” Jagr tweeted. “Hopefully we can make together big things.”

Jagr tallied 54 points for the Philadelphia Flyers last season.

“I don’t think there’s any question he still has game in the tank,” Stars general manager Joe Nieuwendyk said on a conference call. “He had a terrific season with Philadelphia.”

Jagr leads all active players in goals (665) and assists (998). He has been part of two Stanley Cup championship teams and won the Hart Trophy, given to the league’s most valuable player, in 1999.
