Alexei Yashin wants to follow Jaromir Jagr back into the NHL.  The 37-year old's previous NHL contract  is still being bought out by the New York Islanders.  That will expire after the 2014-15 season, but after four years in the Russian Super League/KHL, he wants one more shot.

He may not be the 40-goal man he once was in his prime, but he can still put the puck in the net.  He scored 15 goals and tallied 18 helpers for SKA St. Petersberg in the 2010-11 season and would be a great depth player for any team.

He may not have had postseason success in the NHL but he has had tons of it in Russia, bringing Lokomotiv Yaroslavl within a victory of the Gagarin Cup (presented to the KHL Champions).

He has great leadership skills and may not be the star quality that most teams desire but will bring plenty to the table as he may have some skill left.

Here are five teams that have reportedly shown interest.
