Thirteen top storylines from season\'s first half

The calendar has flipped to 2014 and the NHL's regular season has moved just past the halfway point, meaning it's time to reflect back on the stories that dominated the headlines in the first three months of the 2013-14 season.

NHL.com took a look at 13 of the best and biggest storylines in the NHL so far this season, and Jaromir Jagr's impressive start made the cut:

Jagr's surge up the charts

Jaromir Jagr has come to the New Jersey Devils and found new life in his legs and stick. The 41-year-old right wing is beating back Father Time to lead the Devils in scoring with 34 points in 43 games. Arguably no team has gotten more bang for their buck than New Jersey has with Jagr, who carries a $2 million salary-cap charge.

Jagr is averaging more than 19 minutes of ice time per game, but his pace has recently slowed as he has just one assist in the past six games. However, for most of the season Jagr has looked nothing like the player who couldn't score or play too many significant shifts during the Boston Bruins' run to the Stanley Cup Final last year.

Jagr's remarkable first half also moved him up the NHL's all-time scoring charts.

His four game-winning goals this season lifted him over Gordie Howe and into first place on the NHL's all-time list for most game-winning goals in a career (122). His 13 goals has pushed him into a tie with Mark Messier for seventh place on the NHL's all-time goals list (694) and he has already passed Mario Lemieux and Steve Yzerman on that list this season. Jagr's next point will tie him with Lemieux for seventh on the NHL's all-time points list (1,723).
