New Jersey bench boss Pete DeBoer spoke very highly of Jaromir Jagr for his play during the 20131-14 season.
"On the hockey rink he's as good as I've ever seen," DeBoer said. "He's maybe the best puck possession player of all time. You talk about (Wayne) Gretzky and what he was able to do with his playmaking ability and (Mario) Lemieux with his package of size and speed and skill. For me this is the best puck possession player of all time." Jagr led the Devils in scoring during the regular season with 67 points in 82 games. He signed a one-year contract last month to remain in New Jersey. May 30 - 7:31 AM

Jaromir Jagr announced his retirement on Sunday, but only from international play with the Czech Republic.

It's difficult to imagine the future Hall of Famer doing more for his country than Jagr has over his lengthy career. Just ask players like Tomas Hertl if he's had an impact in growing the sport there.

Jaromir Jagr didn't have a desire to test the unrestricted free agent market.

"Two things could happen with free agency: Maybe there would be more teams (interested) and I would get more money," Jagr said. "But if I'm happy somewhere, there's no reason to change." Jagr had a great season with the Devils and enjoyed his time there despite the fact that they missed the playoffs. On top of that, he was probably looking forward to staying in one place after jumping from team to team for a few years.

Jaromir Jagr's one-year deal for the 2014-15 campaign will come with a $3.5 million base salary.

Jagr could earn up to $5.5 million if he activates his performance bonuses by playing in enough games. He was able to play in all 82 contests in 2013-14, but there's a chance that the Devils might choose to rest him more often as he slowly approaches his mid-40s.
Apr 30 - 3:10 PM

Jaromir Jagr has agreed to terms with the New Jersey Devils.

Jagr will turn 43 before the end of the 2014-15 campaign, but he proved he can still excel at the NHL level by scoring 24 goals and 67 points in 82 games this season. He currently ranks 20th on the all-time list for games played with 1,473, but he could climb as high as 11th if he stays healthy next season. Jagr is also just three goals shy of Mike Gartner and sixth place in the NHL's all-time goals scored list. Fifth-place Phil Esposito is 12 goals ahead of Jagr. In terms of points, Jagr just needs 16 more to match the fifth-place Marcel Dionne.

Jaromir Jagr is a nominee for the Masterton Trophy.

The Masterton goes to the player "who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey." In Jagr's case, it's highlighting his dedication to the sport after extending his career into his 40s. He is expected to keep going and re-sign with the Devils.

Jaromir Jagr and the New Jersey Devils are close to signing a deal, but nothing is finalized.

That's based on statements from Devils GM Lou Lamoriello and Jagr's agent, Petr Svoboda. Both spoke out on the subject after Jagr told Nova Sport that he had an agreement in place to return to New Jersey. He scored 24 goals and 67 points in 82 games in 2013-14.

Jaromir Jagr will play for the Czech Republic in the 2014 World Championship.

Jagr was initially hesitant to play in the tournament because he's scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent, so an injury could cost him dearly. He has 25 goals and 58 points in 60 career World Championship games.
Apr 29 - 10:17 AM

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.
Apr 14 - 4:27 PM

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.
Apr 13 - 6:09 PM

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.
Apr 11 - 11:24 PM

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.
Apr 8 - 3:54 PM

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."
