Center Ice: New Jersey Devils Resign Jagr

(Maximum Sports Channels – Joseph Randazzo) The New Jersey Devils have resigned Jaromir Jagr. As of now the terms to the deal have not been released. This is a huge signing for the Devils as last season Jagr led the team with 24 goals and 43 assists. The wily veteran is still able to produce at a high level so it’s good they latched on to him before anybody else could.

Jagr is a two-time winner of the Stanley Cup when he played for the Pittsburgh Penguins. Next season he’ll start the season with 705 goals and 1,050 assists. These big time numbers put him on the list as the sixth all-time scorer in NHL history.

Jagr was also one of the three finalists for the Bill Masterson Trophy. The Trophy is given to players who best exemplify qualities of “perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey.”

As of now the 42-year-old is playing for the Czech Republic at the World Championships in Belarus. Here in New York, Ranger fans remember Jagr for helping the team return to prominence. After missing the playoffs for seven consecutive seasons, and a fire sale of high priced veterans who weren’t living up to expectations, Jagr patched up some glaring holes – especially the biggest hole which was left by Mark Messier’s retirement.

Jagr started that 2005 season by scoring 10 goals in less than 10 minutes; an NHL record. He also helped the team get to the Stanley Cup playoffs after the long seven year absence. Sadly several key injuries, one of which was Jagr’s, led to the team getting the boot by the New Jersey Devils; the team he now calls home.
