Devils' Jagr appreciates Stadium Series setting

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

NEW YORK -- Growing up in Czechoslovakia, New Jersey Devils forward Jaromir Jagr didn't know anything about Babe Ruth, Joe DiMaggio or the New York Yankees.

But after more than two decades of life in North America, Jagr certainly could appreciate what it meant to be dressing in the Yankees clubhouse Saturday prior to Devils practice at Yankee Stadium.

New Jersey plays the New York Rangers in the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series on Sunday (12:30 p.m. ET, NBC, CBC).

"It's a very special place just to play here," Jagr said. "And I'm from Czech so baseball is not very popular. I can imagine for some guys who love baseball, [what it's like] just to be here."

Devils' Josefson returns to lineup for Stadium Series

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEW YORK -- New Jersey Devils left wing Jacob Josefson will be in the lineup for the first time in almost a month on Sunday against the New York Rangers in the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series (12:30 p.m. ET, NBC, CBC) at Yankee Stadium.

Josefson will fill in on the team's top line alongside center Travis Zajac and right wing Jaromir Jagr. The Devils re-assigned Joe Whitney to the team's American Hockey League affiliate, the Albany Devils, on Saturday to make room for the 22-year-old Swede. Whitney made his NHL debut with Zajac and Jagr on Friday in a victory against the Washington Capitals.

Josefson acknowledged he was informed of the decision prior to the team's arrival at Yankee Stadium.

"I've been working hard outside of the lineup, trying to get back and show them in practices and this is a good opportunity," Josefson said. "When you haven't played in a while it's the same situation as always, you want to prove yourself and I might as well make the best of it."

Devils choose Brodeur to start outdoor game

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEW YORK -- Martin Brodeur will be the starting goalie for the New Jersey Devils against the New York Rangers on Sunday at Yankee Stadium in the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series.

"It really was an easy decision from a right-thing-to-do perspective," Devils coach Peter DeBoer said Saturday. "He's done so much in his career with the Devils and also he's played some excellent hockey for us this year."

The Devils were given an opportunity to experience the elements Saturday afternoon during an hour-long practice at the Stadium. DeBoer guided his team through a controlled scrimmage then a few basic drills before players, coaches and team personnel had a chance to skate with their families.

DeBoer made the announcement about Brodeur at his post-practice press conference.

"The tough part was that Cory [Schneider] was on a little bit of a roll," DeBoer said. "He had been almost unbeatable the last five or six games, so that threw a little bit of a wrench into the thinking, but at the end of the day, this was the right thing to do, and both guys handled it professionally."

Collins: Demand remains high for NHL outdoor games

Saturday, 01.25.2014 / 1:03 PM / NHL Insider

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

LOS ANGELES -- After setting a new standard with six outdoor games this season, the NHL expects to scale back next season while still continuing the outdoor game tradition beyond New Year's Day.

John Collins, the League's chief operating officer, said Friday at Dodger Stadium that the League will "definitely" be holding fewer than six outdoor games next season, but he wouldn't put a number on how many and he wouldn't say where they could be other than Washington, D.C., which has already been announced as the host city for the Winter Classic on Jan. 1, 2015, at a still to be determined venue against a yet unnamed opponent.

"We have ideas," Collins said. "There are the markets that everybody points to that we all know would be great. We already announced Washington. Everybody knows Minnesota would be great. Colorado would be great. If this goes well [in Los Angeles], San Jose would be great."

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
