SUNRISE, Fla. - Jaromir Jagr was traded to the Florida Panthers on Thursday, being acquired from the New Jersey Devils in exchange for two draft picks.

Jagr is fifth in NHL history with 1,784 points and sixth with 716 goals, one behind Phil Esposito. Jagr scored 11 goals and added 18 assists in 59 games with New Jersey this season.
