Jaromir Jagr wants to extend his NHL career, and his agent said teams are “very interested” in his 41-year-old client.

Jagr might have to wait a while, and the league's active scoring leader might not be the only free agent without a new job this weekend.

“He definitely still wants to play and there is some interest in him,” Jagr's agent, Petr Svoboda, told The Associated Press on Saturday afternoon. “I think it's going to take some time, but you never know for sure because there are three teams that are very interested.”

Svoboda declined to say which teams wanted to sign Jagr.

Jagr, a five-time scoring champion and former NHL MVP, was able to continue his career in the league during the shortened season when the Dallas Stars gave him a $4.55 million, one-year contract last summer.

Sabres sign defenseman Sulzer

The Buffalo Sabres have signed defenseman Alexander Sulzer to a one-year contract. The 29-year-old German had three goals and one assist in 17 games with Buffalo before suffering a knee injury Feb. 23. He has seven goals and 20 points in 106 career NHL games for Buffalo, Vancouver, Florida and Nashville.

Blues add Roy

Derek Roy agreed to terms on a one-year, $4 million deal with the Blues, pending a physical for the veteran forward.

The 30-year-old Roy split last season between the Stars and Canucks and finished with seven goals and 21 assists. The 5-foot-9 playmaker spent the bulk of his NHL career with the Buffalo Sabres, with whom he had a career-high 81 points in the 2007-08 season.

Oilers re-sign forward Jones

The Edmonton Oilers re-signed gritty forward Ryan Jones to a one-year contract.

The 29-year-old Jones has 52 goals, 42 assists and 141 penalty minutes in 282 regular-season games.
