Jaromir Jagr isn't looking to retire anytime soon.
"I don't really agree with people who say you should finish on the top, so people remember you," Jagr said. "I think it's kind of bull. It's like in regular life, you feel the best probably when you're 30, 35, so you're not going to live anymore after that? You still have to finish it. It's the same thing with hockey for me. As long as I can play, I'm going to play." He has three goals and 13 points in 21 games in 2014-15. Nov 25 - 10:47 AM

Jaromir Jagr dished out a pair of assists for the Devils in 3-1 win over Minnesota Tuesday night.

The ageless wonder continues to amaze with his production as he has now amassed 12 points in 16 contests to lead New Jersey in scoring. Travis Zajac, Tuomo Ruutu and Michael Cammalleri were the goal scorers for the Devils in the winning effort.

Despite winning yet again, Jaromir Jagr does not think his New Jersey Devils are playing well.

"I love it, but I’m mad about the fact we don’t play well," Jagr said after a 3-2 win over Columbus on Saturday. "When we play the way we can play, we can beat anybody. That’s the sad thing. The urgency is not here. We always look for the excuse: ‘I’m too young. I haven’t played many games so it’s okay to make a mistake. I’m a veteran player so the coach will give me a break.’ The game can be so much fun if you play the right way. That’s what ticks me off the most. If we learn how to play the right way, making a play instead of just dumping it in, it’s easy to win. We’re playing too safe or too risky. We don’t pick the right plays at the right time." The 42-year-old veteran had an assist on Saturday and now has eight points in 11 games.

Jaromir Jagr's overtime winner was the 19th of his career.

Jagr is the champion of overtime winning goals as he is the best ever with three more over the next closest who happens to be teammate Patrik Elias. He also is the career leader in game winners with 125, seven better than Phil Esposito.

Jaromir Jagr potted the overtime game-winning goal for the Devils in their 3-2 victory against the Senators on Saturday night.

Jagr saved the Devils — they were 1:21 away from going to a shootout, where they’ve lost the past 18 times. His power-play goal was his second point and sixth point on the season. Jagr doesn’t skate like he used to, but he still possesses a lethal shot and such a strong lower body, so it’s hard to move him out of the way. Damon Severson had a goal and an assist, while Marek Zidlicky picked up the other goal.

Jaromir Jagr scored a goal and added an assist for the Devils Tuesday, but the team dropped a 4-3 decision to the Rangers.

The two points bring the season total to five in six games for the ageless wonder. Adam Henrique matched his line with a goal and an assist of his own while Jonathon Merrill also netted his first of the season.

Jaromir Jagr added to his legend on Thursday night, as well as his place in the record books.

He now has 1,757 career points, putting him all alone in sixth place on the NHL's all-time points list, and just 14 behind Marcel Dionne. Ironically, neither assist was all that impressive. The record-breaker in the second period was a semi-blind turn-around shot from the blue line that Mike Cammalleri expertly tipped past Steve Mason to make it 3-0. While his second assist came on Cammalleri's second of the game and empty-netter with a minute left to go up 6-4. But hey they all read like beautiful no-look backhand saucers in the boxscore though, right?

Jaromir Jagr is now all alone in sixth place as the NHL's all-time leader scorer.

Jagr notched his 1,756th career point with an assist on Mike Cammalleri's second period goal Thursday night. The 42-year-old maverick needs just 15 more to catch Marcel Dionne

Jaromir Jagr lit the lamp in the Devils’ 3-0 victory over the Rangers on Saturday night.

Jagr doesn’t come with the flair of his younger years, but his finishing ability remains strong. He should have another great year in New Jersey, on a team that should pack more offensive punch this season. Tuomo Ruutu and Dainius Zubrus scored the other goals. Adam Larsson picked up two helpers. Cory Schneider was a perfect 20 for 20 between the pipes.

Jaromir Jagr doesn't plan on playing his last season in 2014-15.

"I don't think that way," Jagr said. "I love the game. What I want to tell you is I don't know if it's going to be the last year in the NHL. If I stay healthy, it's not going to be my last year in hockey. I want to play until 50, maybe more. But I want to play in the NHL if I'm good enough. I don't want to just be here just to be here." The 42-year-old winger had 24 goals and 67 points in 82 games last season. Jagr said he signed a one-year contract because he likes the added pressure of having to prove himself. Coach Pete DeBoer said Jagr is in great shape and the future Hall of Famer intends to play better than he did a year ago.
Sep 18 - 4:23 PM

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.
May 25 - 6:06 PM

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.
Apr 30 - 4:48 PM

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.
