Jaromir Jagr plans to test NHL free agency this offseason, according to TSN's Darren Dreger. Jagr was reportedly in discussions to re-sign with the Philadelphia Flyers after his one-year contract expired after this past season. The 40-year-old is now opting to see what value he has on an open market.

Jagr is the NHL's active leader with 1,653 career points. He tallied 54 points (19 goals, 35 assists) during the 2011-12 regular season. The Flyers seemed open to bringing him back for at least another year, and Jagr could still ultimately sign with Philly.
