The Dallas Stars have reportedly traded forward Jaromir Jagr to the Boston Bruins.

According to multiple reports, including the Dallas Morning News, the Stars will obtain a pair of prospects and a draft pick in return for the 41-year-old future Hall of Famer.

The Bruins have been looking to add a veteran presence and last week thought they had acquired Jarome Iginla from Calgary, only to find out a few hours later that the Flames had instead dealt him to Pittsburgh.

Jagr has 14 goals and 12 assists in 34 games this season, his first in Dallas. He signed with the Stars as a free agent last July after appearing in 73 games for Philadelphia during the 2011-12 season.

The Czech native had spent three seasons in Russia's Kontinental Hockey League before coming back to the NHL. He had 19 goals and 35 assists for the Flyers.

Jagr, a five-time Art Ross Trophy winner as the NHL's scoring leader, has 679 goals and 1,000 assists for 1,679 points in 1,380 games with Pittsburgh, Washington, the New York Rangers, Philadelphia and Dallas.

A nine-time All-Star, Jagr won a pair of Stanley Cup titles with Pittsburgh in 1991 and '92, and also captured the Hart Trophy as league MVP for the '98-99 campaign with the Penguins.
