Devils scratch Jagr, Elias for preseason opener
Patrik Elias and Jaromir Jagr reportedly will not play in Monday's preseason opener against the New York Rangers at Prudential Center.

Patrik Elias and Jaromir Jagr reportedly will not play in Monday's preseason opener for the New Jersey Devils against the New York Rangers at Prudential Center (7 p.m. ET) in Newark, N.J.

Elias is a healthy scratch and Jagr, who was forced to exit the opening day of training camp on Sept. 12 after experiencing "general soreness," will not play until he is feels 100 percent. Both players were not available at the team's morning skate on Monday in Newark.

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
