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.

Ryane Clowe (concussion) will probably be available for the Devils' first training camp practice on Friday.

Clowe has been undergoing testing to make sure he's healthy enough to play and so far, it sounds like the results have been encouraging. He's looking to bounce back after being limited to 43 games in 2013-14.

Cory Schneider understands that he has big shoes to fill in New Jersey.

Schneider has been hungry for the opportunity to be a starting goaltender for a while, but his current position is more than that. He also has the legacy left by Martin Brodeur to wrestle with as he will, fairly or not, inevitably be compared to the future Hall of Famer. That doesn't bother Schneider though. "We all knew at some point he was not going to be here, though it sort of seems strange without him here, but, at the same time, if it's going to be anyone, I'm excited and proud that it's me," Schneider said.

Michael Cammalleri thinks the New Jersey Devils are in a position to surprise people this season.

"I like our team," Cammalleri said. "I've said that since deciding to sign here. I think we have a good team. Even talking to the guys – and I've talked to a couple of the guys coming in on tryouts that I've known from other teams – and everyone seems to think that this team is going to be maybe better than the outsiders might expect. So, I like our team. I think we're going to be a real good team." The hope is that Cammalleri will be a big part of it after signing a five-year, $25 million contract. There's a fair chance he'll end up playing on the team's first line with Jaromir Jagr and Travis Zajac, although nothing has been determined at this stage.

New Jersey Devils power forward Ryane Clowe is reportedly undergoing neurological tests in hopes of being cleared to play.

The team hopes he can be good to go to start the season, but that remains to be seen. Clowe, 31, was limited to 26 points in 43 games played last season while also compiling 33 PIM. Oddly enough, his path was quite similar to departed Devils power forward David Clarkson. The difference is that Clowe's concussion history remains very worrisome.

Scott Wedgewood is excited to be in the fight for the Devils' backup job.

It will probably go to Scott Clemmensen or Keith Kinkaid, but the 22-year-old Wedgewood can't be ruled out. "I want to play," Wedgewood said. "I'd love to be up top. I'd love to start in Albany. I just want to get best opportunity possible for myself to develop and play. If they want me here, I'm, obviously, going to play for that position and put my best foot forward. And if they keep me down in Albany, I'm going to play to stay up there and move up." He had a 2.39 GAA and .899 save percentage in 36 AHL games in 2013-14.

Ryan Carter will attend New Jersey's training camp as a tryout.

He remains an unsigned unrestricted free agent after playing his last three seasons with the New Jersey Devils. Carter produced 10 points in 62 games in 2013-14.
Sep 15 - 10:38 AM

Mike Komisarek will attend New Jersey's training camp on a tryout basis.

He had trouble cracking Carolina's roster in 2013-14, while suiting up in just 32 games.
Sep 15 - 10:27 AM

Eric Gelinas has agreed to a one-year, $900,000 deal with the New Jersey Devils.

"It worked out over the weekend," GM Lou Lamoriello said. "He's here and there are certainly no issues. He's just getting ready. I'm just happy to have everybody here and everybody ready. It's the first step towards getting our team together. We've got all our players here and now training camp begins." The 23-year-old defender recorded seven goals and 29 points in 60 games last season.

Peter DeBoer believes the mood in the Devils' camp will be different without veteran legendary goaltender Martin Brodeur, who has been with the team every year since he was drafted in 1990.

"It’s the first time in 20 years that you’re walking into a dressing room without Marty Brodeur in it. For everybody— trainers, players, coaches— that’s going to be different," said DeBoer. "But that’s the game, people move on... you’ve got to get past that and get ready for the next game." The Devils are not without a sturdy replacement, as Cory Schneider is set to take the full-time starting job from the onset.

There are no updates in the Eric Gelinas contract negotiations.

GM Lou Lamoriello had this to say about the restricted free agent: "No (as to whether there is anything new to report), but these are all day-to-day things. I'm sure things have a way of working out. Eric knows what we think of him and the opportunity that is being presented to him. Not only to him, but to our other young defensemen with the moves made this summer (buying out Anton Volchenkov's contract and not re-signing Mark Fayne). I'm sure that Eric and his agent (Gilles Lupien) will make the right decision. They know what it is and it's there for them. They have to make that decision. Not me." Gelinas had seven goals and 29 points in 60 games last season and quarterbacked the power play for a good portion of the season.

The New Jersey Devils have reportedly handed Ruslan Fedotenko a professional tryout to attend training camp.

Fedotenko 35, last played in the NHL with the Philadelphia Flyers during the 2013-14 season, collecting 13 points in 47 games during that lockout-abbreviated campaign. He played in the KHL (HC Donbass) last season, producing 18 points in 33 contests. He's unlikely to be a notable fantasy contributor if he does make the Devils.

Reid Boucher is looking to make the New Jersey Devils out of training camp this season.

Boucher played 23 games for the Devils last season before he was sent to the minors on January 22. He had two goals and seven points but is a natural scorer and the Devils could certainly need some scoring help. Stay tuned.

Defenseman Adam Larsson has struggled at the NHL level and this could be a make or break season as a Devil.

New Jersey took Larsson with the fourth overall pick in the 2011 Draft and while he played at the NHL level his first two seasons, he played only 26 games with the Devils last season while playing 33 times for their AHL affiliate in Albany. Larsson has plenty of talent but may be in need of a change of scenery. The good news is that he is only 21 and he can look at fellow Swede Victor Hedman who finally became a stud blueliner in 2013-14 after being selected second overall six seasons ago.
Sep 13 - 8:38 AM

Josh Rimer is reporting that the New Jersey Devils are giving Jordin Tootoo a professional tryout offer.

Tootoo played for the Detroit Red Wings last season and was bought out of his contract in June. There were rumors that the Winnipeg Jets offered him a two-way contract that he turned down before agreeing to go to camp with the Devils. Tootoo has value in pools that use penalty minutes but of course he will have to crack the Devils roster to have any value.
