Here’s the remarkable thing about Jagr: he’s been able to adapt over the years to remain a useful top-six forward at the age of 41.
The New Jersey Devils have signed forward Jaromir Jagr to make up for some of the scoring lost with the recent retirement of Ilya Kovalchuk.
General manager Lou Lamoriello announced the appointment to Pete DeBoer’s staff Friday. Foligno replaces Matt Shaw, who left to become head coach of Dubuque in the USHL.

The Devils went 0-0-3 on their three-game road trip last week, losing shootouts to both Ottawa and Tampa Bay and falling in overtime to Florida.
With Ilya Kovalchuk on the mend and stars slumping, it’s imperative Devils GM Lou Lamoriello acquires a veteran scorer before the April 3 trade deadline.
Lou Lamoriello has announced that star scorer Ilya Kovalchuk will miss 2-4 weeks after suffering a right shoulder injury.
