Jagr Debating Whether First Season With Devils Will Be His Last
NEWARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork) – Jaromir Jagr’s legendary career has taken him to seven different NHL cities. Newark might be his final stop.
Jagr hinted on his official Facebook page that the one-year deal he signed with the Devils this summer could be his last contract.
“It looks like it will be my last season, so I can’t be too risky,” Jagr posted on his Facebook page.
Jagr was signed by the Devils after star forward Ilya Kovalchuk departed the NHL for the Kontinental Hockey League.
In 45 combined games with the Dallas Stars and Boston Bruins, Jagr scored 35 points during the shortened 2012-13 season.
Jagr will turn 42 in February. He has scored 1688 total points in 1391 NHL games played throughout his storied career.
As a member of the Bruins, Jagr returned to the Stanley Cup Finals for the first time since 1992. The Bruins lost the 2013 Stanley Cup Finals in six games to the Chicago Blackhawks.
He won consecutive Stanley Cups in 1991 and 1992 as a member of the Pittsburgh Penguins.
