    Bruins Acquire Jaromir Jagr

    After losing out on Jarome Iginla last week, the Boston Bruins have landed a different veteran right wing likely bound for the Hall of Fame in a trade Tuesday.

    The Dallas Stars have traded 41-year-old Jaromir Jagr to the Bruins in exchange for a conditional second-round pick in the 2013 NHL Draft and two prospects.

    The conditional second-round pick becomes a first-round selection if Boston advances to the Eastern Conference Finals in this year's Stanley Cup Playoffs.

    "Jaromir Jagr produced as a consistent scorer for our team all year and we would like to thank him for his contributions to our hockey club," Dallas Stars general manager Joe Nieuwendyk said. "With our eye to the future, we have acquired some valuable assets that we believe strengthen our organization."

    Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said he believed he had a deal in place to acquire Iginla from the Calgary Flames on Thursday, but the trade never happened and Iginla was sent to the Pittsburgh Penguins instead.

    In 34 games this season, Jagr, 41, leads the Stars with 14 goals and 26 points. He has 679 goals and 1,000 assists in 1,380 career games.

    The prospects headed to Dallas are forwards Lane MacDermid and Cody Payne. MacDermid, 23, has played eight games with the Bruins over the past two seasons and has not registered a point. He has four goals, two assists and 82 penalty minutes in 37 games with Providence of the American Hockey League.

    Payne, 19, was the Bruins' fifth-round pick in the 2012 draft. In 66 games with the Plymouth Whalers of the Ontario Hockey League, he had 24 goals and 45 points.

    Great Pick up right there. Jagr can provide some gr8 experience on the ice for the Bruins. They will be a force to reckon with through the playoffs and next year.
