Devils get Jagr back at practice

New Jersey Devils forward Jaromir Jagr returned to practice Tuesday for the first time since the opening of training camp on Sept. 12 after nursing a lower-body injury.

"Back and hip muscles, they're all connected," Jagr said. "I'm glad I didn't get injured again. I guess that's the first step. I knew it wasn't good when it happened to me in the first practice. It probably had something to do with the plane ride. Traveling 15 hours is not easy."

NHL Live previews Pacific, chats with Kings' Robitaille

As we get closer and closer to #NHLFaceOff, NHL Live at 5 p.m. ET Tuesday on NHL Network will break down a division per day. Today we head out to the west coast to preview the new Pacific Division and grade the offseason moves the Anaheim Ducks, Calgary Flames, Edmonton Oilers, Los Angeles Kings, Phoenix Coyotes, San Jose Sharks and Vancouver Canucks made.

Also on Tuesday we'll be joined by Kings President of Business Operations and Hall of Famer Luc Robitaille, who was famously a ninth-round draft choice back in 1984.

The New Jersey Devils on Tuesday signed forward Damien Brunner to a multiyear contract. Brunner's agent, Neil Sheehy, wrote on his Twitter account that the contract is two years for a total of $5 million.

Brunner was invited to Devils training camp on a professional tryout and had two assists playing on a line with Patrik Elias and Jacob Josefson in the Devils' preseason win against the New York Islanders last Saturday at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

"He came to camp without a contract and showed us what he can do," Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello said.

Canadiens expect Gionta to play final preseason game

BROSSARD, Quebec -- Montreal Canadiens captain Brian Gionta is expected to play his team's final preseason game Thursday night against the Ottawa Senators, thereby assuring he will be ready to start the season on time Oct. 1 against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Gionta underwent surgery to repair a torn biceps muscle in his left arm in May and there was some question at the beginning of camp on whether or not he would be able to play on opening night.

While nothing is set in stone, both Gionta and Canadiens coach Michel Therrien said Tuesday that the plan is to have him play Thursday night.
