The Calgary Flames reportedly placed longtime NHL forward Jaromir Jagr on waivers Sunday with the intent of a mutual contract termination allowing him to seek opportunities in Europe.

Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet first reported the roster move. Bob McKenzie of TSN confirmed Jagr’s desire to keep playing overseas if he goes unclaimed on waivers.

The 45-year-old future Hall of Famer signed a one-year, $1 million contract with the Flames in early October.

He failed to make much of an impact in his 24th NHL season, however, tallying one goal and six assists in 22 appearances. He hasn’t played since the team’s victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on New Year’s Eve because of an undisclosed injury.
