Jagr probably won't play in Devils' preseason finale

New Jersey Devils forward Jaromir Jagr told reporters after practicing Wednesday that he probably won't play Thursday in the team's preseason finale against the Philadelphia Flyers.

"I'm probably not going to play [Thursday] only because I didn't have a practice with my teammates," said Jagr, who has skated on his own and with a group of Devils on Tuesday who weren't playing in that evening's game in Philadelphia.

Jagr, who left the Devils' first practice Sept. 12 with a lower-body injury, said the final decision belongs to the New Jersey coaching staff, but that he wouldn't be concerned about not getting into a preseason game and feels practices will be enough to get him up to speed.

Demko looking forward to college, prospects game

Thatcher Demko is a goaltender playing his freshman season with Boston College. The 6-foot-3, 190-pounder played his minor hockey in southern California before joining the U.S. National Team Development Program last season. He's excelled for the United States at the under-18 level and could earn a spot on the U.S. team for the 2014 World Junior Championship. Demko has offered to maintain a monthly blog for NHL.com that will chronicle his season leading up to the 2014 NHL Draft.

Hi everyone. I'm Thatcher Demko. I am currently a goaltender for the Boston College Eagles in the Hockey East conference.

I was born in Sam Diego in December 1995. Growing up playing in San Diego was definitely a different experience than most hockey players have. In my city of nearly 1.5 million people there were four ice sheets, two in one building, so finding ice wasn't always the easiest thing to do so I always had to do so unordinary things to train.

Once I hit 15, I moved to Omaha to play for the Omaha Lancers in the United States Hockey League. After one season with that incredible organization, I moved again, to Ann Arbor, Mich., and played one season with the U.S. National Team Development Program U-18 team. I then accelerated my high school studies and got into Boston College a year early.

Stars' Daley could miss start of season

Dallas Stars coach Lindy Ruff revealed after Tuesday's team practice that veteran defenseman Trevor Daley remains out with an upper-body injury and is not likely to be in the team's lineup for their opening-night contest Oct. 3 against the Florida Panthers.

"It looks like Trevor will miss a little bit of time with upper body," Ruff said. "I don't think he'll be able to start the season, but it won't be a long time."

I always feel the pressure to produce offensively. It's disappointing and frustrating when you can't help out your team the way you're supposed to.
