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 mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
