Devils' Jagr not focused on possible trade: report

New Jersey Devils forward Jaromir Jagr has a simple philosophy about the NHL Trade Deadline, which is 3 p.m. ET on March 2.

Whatever will be, will be. Jagr's focus will remain squarely on playing hockey.

"I don't pay attention to the deadline. I'm a professional. I just work even harder than I did before," Jagr said Monday, according to NJ Advance Media. "If I stay here, I stay here. If I don't, I still have to be ready. If somebody trades for me they'll expect me to be good. And if I stay here I have to be good. So I have to work harder than ever to make sure I'm good."

Jagr, who turns 43 on Feb. 15, enters the Devils game Monday against the Edmonton Oilers with a four-game point streak; he has two goals and two assists in that span. He has 11 goals and 29 points in 49 games, and earlier this season became the oldest player in NHL history to record a hat trick. His next goal will be the 717th of his career and tie him with Phil Esposito for fifth all-time.

Stars' Nill patient heading into trade deadline: report

Dallas Stars general manager Jim Nill isn't in a hurry to do much as the clock ticks toward the NHL Trade Deadline, which is 3 p.m. ET on March 2.

The Stars enter the week five points behind the Calgary Flames for the second Western Conference wild-card spot into the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

"If it looks like we're out of it in two weeks, we're probably looking to move [unrestricted free agents]," Nill told

But if the Stars are still in contention? "Probably nothing [ahead of the deadline]," he said.

Oilers defenseman Petry drawing interest: report

Edmonton Oilers defenseman Jeff Petry is drawing interest as the 2015 NHL Trade Deadline approaches, general manager Craig MacTavish said Friday.

MacTavish, speaking on 630 CHED Radio, said Petry's recent play has increased his value. The 27-year-old can be an unrestricted free agent after this season.

Jeff Petry
Defense - EDM
GOALS: 4 | ASST: 7 | PTS: 11
SOG: 95 | +/-: -23
"The last 20 games he’s really settled into what I think is his best hockey as an Oiler," MacTavish said according to "He's aggressive. He's assertive making decisions. He's decisive on the ice. He's jumping up on the play at a level he never … he did from time-to-time, but he never really felt comfortable doing it because he's a conservative guy by nature. But he's playing the game. He's playing the game to win and everybody around the League is seeing that. He'd be a valuable piece for anybody to add.

"And pending his UFA status, there's motivation on our part to move him or get him signed. So it'll be one of those things."

Oilers forwards Hall, Pouliot out against Penguins

The Edmonton Oilers will be without forwards Taylor Hall and Benoit Pouliot against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday, interim coach Todd Nelson said, according to the team's verified Twitter account.

"As the game went on it started to get worse," Nelson said of the injury, which Hall re-aggravated. "It was up to Taylor and the pain."
