Sunrise, FL, United States (4E Sports) - Veteran Jaromir Jagr will return next season after signing a one-year deal with the Florida Panthers.

Sources said the contract is worth $4 million, with games-played bonuses that could add $1.5 million.

This will be Jagr's sixth consecutive one-year contract since he returned to the NHL in 2011 after playing three seasons in the Kontinental Hockey League.

"Jaromir is a Hall of Fame player and had an excellent season playing alongside Aleksander Barkov and Jonathan Huberdeau," Tallon said in a statement Thursday.

"His track record speaks for itself, ranking third all-time in points and goals. He has been a great fit with our organization and we are excited to have him back for next season," he added.

In his first full season with Florida, Jagr, 44, led the Panthers in scoring with 66 points.

Jagr's 27 goals were the most for a player who began a season at the age of 43 or older. He was the oldest player in the NHL last season and became the oldest player to score 60 points in a season.

The announcement came 11 days after the Panthers season ended with a 2-1 double-overtime loss to the New York Islanders in Game 6 of their Eastern Conference First Round series.
