42-year-old Jaromir Jagr re-signs with New Jersey Devils

NEWARK, N.J. - Devils' leading-scorer Jaromir Jagr will remain in New Jersey.

The team announced Wednesday that Jagr signed a contract, but didn't release terms. Jagr led the Devils last season with 24 goals and 43 assists.

The 42-year-old Jagr is currently playing for the Czech Republic at the World Championships in Belarus.

A two-time winner of the Stanley Cup when he played for the Pittsburgh Penguins, Jagr begins next season with 705 goals and 1,050 assists, tied for sixth all-time among NHL scorers.

Jagr is one of three finalists for the Bill Masterton Trophy, given to the player "who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey."

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
