Pittsburgh (KDKA)- Sources are telling the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that free-agent Jaromir Jagr is reaching out to the Penguins about a possible return to his original team.

Jagr has played the last three seasons in the Kontinental Hockey League and has talked about a possible return to the NHL. He has mentioned the Red Wings, Rangers, Canadiens and Penguins as preferred destinations.

General manager Ray Shero has extended an invitation to Jagr to play in an alumni golf tournament this summer that will serve as a reunion of the 1991 Stanley Cup championship team. Shero says the invitation did not include an offer to play hockey.

Jagr played for the Penguins from 1990-2001 and won five scoring titles, an MVP and two Stanley Cup titles.
