Jaromir Jagr reiterated that he'd like to re-sign with the Devils.
"We have to wait and see whatever my agent and Lou talk about," Jagr said. "I like it here a lot, no question about it. At my age, it's pretty tough to change teams year after year. It took me at least 15, 20 games just to get used to the players. It's not easy to play in this league plus you have to get used to a new system, new players. It's very tough for me and I don't have that many games left. So, why waste 20 extra games? But we will see." Jagr led the team in scoring with 67 points in 82 games this past season.

With two assists from Sunday giving him 1,050 in his fantastic NHL career, Jaromir Jagr passed Gordie Howe for eighth all-time in that category on Sunday.

He helped the New Jersey Devils beat the Boston Bruins 3-2. Jagr now has 1,755 career points, tying him for sixth all-time with Steve Yzerman. Jagr may be 42, but he's showing he can play without age caveats; he capped off an excellent 24 goal, 67-point season today, leading all Devils and tying him with Chris Kunitz for 26th in the NHL.

Jaromir Jagr notched his 65th point of the season, an assist, during the Devils loss to the Islanders in a shootout on Friday night.

The team's MVP has 24 goals and 41 assists through 81 games. Jagr was going through a cold spell with a five game pointless slump and points in just one of his previous 10 games before Friday night's contest.

The New Jersey Devils players picked Jaromir Jagr as the team's MVP.

Jagr has 24 goals and a team-leading 64 points in 79 games this season. He's also been one of the most team's most vocal members, serving as both a cheerleader and, when the occasional called for it, critic. Jagr's is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, but the Devils are likely to offer the 42-year-old forward an extension.

Jaromir Jagr was held without a point in his fourth straight game in Monday's loss to the Flames by a score of 1-0.

It's hard to say that Jagr is losing steam as the season winds down after he amassed 14 points in 15 games during March. His four shots in the contest trailed only Andy Greene (six) for most on the team in the defeat.

The Devils' 2-1 over Washington Friday night impressed their senior citizen, Jaromir Jagr.

"Best win so far this season," Jagr said. This one ended with the Devils down to eight healthy forwards, as they dressed just 11 and then lost Patrik Elias in the first period, Adam Henrique in the second and Jacob Josefson in the third. This one probably saved the Devils’ season, too. With these two points in the bank and Columbus losing in the final seconds of the third period at home to Chicago, the Devils now are back to within three points of the Blue Jackets for the final wild card in the East. "It was Game 7," Jagr said. "If we lose, we’ve got nothing to play for." They do now, as Saturday night’s game in Carolina suddenly is huge again. "We still have a chance," Jagr said. "It’s going to be tough. It’s going to be back-to-back. But we’re going to give our best."

Jaromir Jagr wasn't happy with the Devils' effort in their 6-3 victory over Florida on Monday.

"I don't know what's wrong," Jagr said. "We had a 3-0 lead and it could be (bleep)ing 5-0 lead. We played like it's a (bleep)ing preseason game." Jagr played a huge role in their victory with a goal and three assists. He hasn't been shy about sharing his feelings as a member of the Devils and he has every reason to be passionate given that the team is barely holding onto hope in the battle for a playoff spot.

Devils right wing Jaromir Jagr is in the NHL's top 10 all-time in goals (704, 7th), assists (1,044, 9th) and points (1,748, 7th), and he got there by burning the Islanders more than any other team.

The most goals he's scored against any team is 61 in 101 games versus the Isles. That's 19 more than he's scored against anyone else, as Philadelphia and Buffalo are next on his goal hit list with 42. Jagr's 88 assists and 149 points against the Isles also are his most any other team. This season, Jagr had a goal and two assists in the first three Devils-Isles games. The Devils visit the Isles tonight.

Jaromir Jagr thinks the New Jersey Devils have put themselves in a position to do something special.

While Jagr would obviously rather it didn't come to this, the Devils need to win almost all - if not all - of their final 10 games to make the playoffs. The flip side in his mind is that they've set themselves up for a potential storybook finish. "At least it's exciting," Jagr said. "That's the way I look at it. It would be something to remember. Something special." The Devils will play against Phoenix on Thursday.
Mar 27 - 10:38 AM

Jaromir Jagr and the rest of the Devils were held off the scoresheet in a 2-0 shutout loss to the Rangers on Saturday.

By failing to record a point in the game, Jagr has now been held scoreless in just two of his last nine contests, proving that even at his age the long season isn't wearing him down too much physically. Despite not scoring, the Czech veteran led the team with four shots on goal in the loss.
Mar 22 - 10:15 PM

Jaromir Jagr scored a goal in the Devils' 4-3 overtime win against Minnesota on Thursday.

It was Jagr's 704th career marker, putting him just four shy of Mike Gartner and sixth place on the NHL's all-time list. In 2013-14, Jagr has 23 goals and 60 points in 70 games.
Mar 21 - 10:01 AM

Jaromir Jagr scored the 1,000th professional goal of his career when you factor in NHL, KHL, Czech League and international play.

Jagr has had a brilliant season, with 22 goals and 36 points, seemingly getting stronger as the season progresses with points in five straight. There is no reason to think this is going to slow down as the Devils fight for a playoff spot.
Mar 15 - 9:25 AM

Right wing Jaromir Jagr, who's still producing goals (21) and points (57) at age 42, is emphasizing his desire to play next season and his preference to remain a member of the New Jersey Devils.

"I hope so," he said about returning to the Devils. So far, though, there have been no discussions of a contract with the Devils for next season.
Mar 13 - 9:43 AM

Jaromir Jagr powered the Devils to a 2-1 victory over rival Philadelphia on Tuesday night with an assist and the game-winning goal in the third period.

At 42 years young, Jagr has been the MVP for the Devils this season after joining the team via free agency last summer. The ageless vet has 21 goals and 57 points through 66 games, and no less than six game winning goals.
Mar 11 - 10:11 PM

Jaromir Jagr's preference is to re-sign with the New Jersey Devils for the 2014-15 campaign.

Jagr is 42 years old, but he has no desire to retire. Given that he has 20 goals and 55 points in 65 games this season, he should be able to secure a new NHL contract, either with the Devils or another squad.
