Devils re-sign Jaromir Jagr

Newark, NJ – The New Jersey Devils today re-signed right wing Jaromir Jagr to a new contract. The announcement was made by Devils’ President/General Manager Lou Lamoriello. As per club policy, no further terms were disclosed.

Jagr enters his second season with the Devils after leading the team with 43 assists and 67 points, while finishing second with 24 goals in 2013-14. He also led the club with six game-winning tallies, 231 shots on goal and a plus-16 mark. The 6-3, 230-lb. forward has career totals of 705 goals and 1,050 assists for 1,755 points and 1,005 penalty minutes in 1,473 career regular-season appearances over 20 seasons with Pittsburgh, Washington, NY Rangers, Philadelphia, Dallas, Boston and New Jersey.

A member of the Penguins’ 1991 and 1992 Stanley Cup Championship teams, he has 78 goals and 121 assists for 199 points and 159 penalty minutes in 202 career playoff contests.

Jagr ranks 20th all-time in games played, seventh in goals, eighth in assists, sixth in points (tie), and is the league’s all-time leader with 124 game-winning goals, including 18 overtime scores. Among current NHL players, he ranks first in games played, goals, assists and points.

Born February 15, 1972 in Kladno, Czech Republic, he was the recipient of the 1998-99 Hart Memorial Trophy as the player adjudged most valuable to his team, and is a five-time winner of the Art Ross Trophy as the league’s scoring champion. Jagr was named to the NHL’s First All-Star Team seven times, the 1996-97 Second All-Star Team and the 1990-91 All-Rookie Team, while appearing in nine NHL All-Star Games. He was Pittsburgh’s first choice and fifth overall selection of the 1990 NHL Entry Draft.

Jagr has also been named a finalist for the 2013-14 Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy, which is awarded "to the player who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey."

Jagr has represented the Czech Republic in five Winter Olympic Games, winning a Gold Medal in 1998 and a Bronze in 2006. He also represented his country at two World Cup of Hockey tournaments, the 1991 Canada Cup, nine World Championships (including 2014) and the 1990 World Junior Championships. Jagr is one of only two Czech-born players (Jiri Slegr) to win an Olympic Gold Medal, World Championship Gold Medal and Stanley Cup.

Between NHL stints, he spent three seasons, 2008-09 through 2010-11, with Avangard Omsk (KHL).
