Here it is — another development in Jaromir Jagr’s situation.

According to a report from Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic on Sunday evening, the Calgary Flames are talking with Jagr’s camp.

The 45-year-old unrestricted free agent did not play this weekend in the Czech Republic as he awaited word on his future in the NHL, with one report stating his camp was talking to three NHL teams.

For months now, there has been talk that Jagr could be a potential fit with the Flames, who could take another step toward contending in the Western Conference, but could also use the help on the right wing heading into the regular season.

The Flames have about $3.64 million in cap space, per CapFriendly.

Update: It sounds like things are heating up between the two sides.
