Jaromir Jagr (flu) will not be in the New Jersey lineup on Monday.

Jagr is feeling a lot better according to GM Lou Lamiorello but won't fly to the West Coast for the one game remaining before the All-Star break. Jagr has been out for a week with the flu but should be fine to return to action once the season resumes in nine days.
Jan 18 - 7:36 AM

Jaromir Jagr (illness) missed his third straight day of practice on Tuesday.

Jagr won't travel with the Devils to Los Angeles for Wednesday's game. That's the start of a three-game road trip, but Jagr might be able to join New Jersey before the end of it if he starts feeling better. With Jagr sidelined, it looks like Steve Bernier will play alongside Adam Henrique and Scott Gomez.

Jaromir Jagr (illness) didn't skate on Monday.

Jagr also missed Sunday's practice. He should be regarded as day-to-day for now, although the silver lining is that New Jersey isn't scheduled to play until Wednesday.
Jan 12 - 11:02 AM

Jaromir Jagr did not take part in the Devils' practice on Sunday because of an illness.

Jagr should be considered day-to-day right now. The 42-year-old has nine goals and 25 points in 43 games for the Devils this season.
Jan 11 - 1:30 PM

Jaromir Jagr doesn't think he deserves to play in the NHL All-Star Game.

With nine goals and 25 points in 42 games this season, Jagr hasn't put up all-star numbers. He's a future Hall of Famer and what he's done at the age of 42 is impressive, but Jagr doesn't want to be selected to the team simply reverence for his age or past accomplishments. There might be another reason to send him to the game though. Although it's not a rule, the NHL typically likes to have at least one representative from every team. Jagr might not be having a great season, but neither are the Devils as a whole, which is illustrated by the fact that he's the team's scoring leader. For that reason, Jagr might be selected to the all-star team even if his age isn't a factor.
Jan 9 - 4:12 PM

Jaromir Jagr and the rest of the Devils offence were shut out by Boston on Thursday night in a 3-0 loss.

Jagr has nine goals and 25 points through 42 games this season. The team will need to regroup quickly as they fly back home to Newark to take on division rivals the New York Islanders on Friday night.
Jan 8 - 10:27 PM

Jaromir Jagr became the oldest player to net a hat trick, powering the Devils to a 5-2 win over the Flyers on Saturday night.

According to Elias Sports, Gordie Howe set the record in 1969. The 42-year-old Jagr last scored a hat trick 3,209 days ago, according to the NHL. Jagr scored twice in the first and once in the second period, also getting five shots on goal. He’s not the game-changing force he once was, but he’s still plenty deadly near the net. Scott Gomez (goal, two assists) and Patrik Elias also lit the lamp for New Jersey. Adam Henrique had two assists.
Jan 3 - 9:45 PM

Jaromir Jagr scored a goal in a 3-1 win over Pittsburgh on Monday.

Jagr now has six goals and 21 points in 37 contests in 2014-15. Those are great numbers for someone that's going to turn 43 in February, but at this point his fantasy value in standard leagues is obviously limited.

Jaromir Jagr wants to stay in New Jersey, but he's also fine with being traded.

"It's up to Lou, whatever he wants," Jagr said, referring to Devils GM Lou Lamoriello. The chances of the Devils making the playoffs are growing increasingly slim and there will likely be some interest out there for Jagr. He's still capable of providing secondary scoring and his wealth of experience would be a benefit to any team with aspirations of making a deep playoff run.

Jaromir Jagr is getting along well with co-coach Adam Oates.

"We think the game the same," Jagr said. "We've got same numbers in our hockey careers, so you've got to think the game the same way. Otherwise, there's no way you're going to get the numbers." Jagr is fifth on the all-time points list while Oates ranks 17th. Oates ranks above Jagr in assists though by a margin of 14, so in a way, Oates will be guiding Jagr to help him steal sixth place in the NHL's all-time helpers list away from Oates.

Jaromir Jagr doesn't like the fact that the Devils are taking a three-day break after dropping seven of their last eight games.

"A break? I don't believe in this," Jagr said. "I don't believe we just are going to have a break and after three days with the holy days without the practice are we going to be the best team in hockey? I don't believe that. I believe in hard work, but I'm different I guess." Of course, teams aren't allowed to hold practices during the Christmas break, so even if the Devils did agree with Jagr, it wouldn't change anything. It's also worth noting that he wasn't criticizing the team for not scheduling more practices. New Jersey's schedule hasn't presented the squad with many opportunities to practice, so Jagr's issue is more with how this section of the schedule has been structured for the Devils.

Jaromir Jagr had a quiet night in the Devils’ 4-0 loss to Washington on Saturday night.

Jagr had two shots on goal and a minus-one rating in 19:02, and hasn’t recorded a point in four games. Jagr is getting next to no help in New Jersey from an offensive standpoint, and that’s why he has just five goals and 20 points.

Jaromir Jagr had two assists in a 3-2 shootout loss Monday night.

Jagr has five goals and 20 points in 31 games this season. With Monday's contest, Jagr is now in sole possession of seventh place on the NHL's all-time assists leaderboard with 1,065. Jagr would need another 14 assists to reach sixth place Adam Oates' mark of 1,079.
Tue, Dec 16, 2014 10:52:00 AM

Jaromir Jagr picked up an assist Saturday but was a minus-three in a 4-3 loss to Dallas.

Jagr has five goals and 18 points in 30 games but what is hurting his fantasy value is his minus-eight rating. You may need to take him out of your fantasy lineup.
