When asked about “The Traveling Jagrs,” Jaromir Jagr had a simple comment: “They know who the man is.”
Sometimes it’s difficult to tell how often the New Jersey Devils forward is being facetious and how often that swagger is legitimate, but when you see the kind of plays he can still make at 42, maybe his bluster is justified.
Take this ridiculous no-look pass (which set up a Michael Cammalleri goal) from last night’s shootout loss against the Calgary Flames, for instance:
Yeah, that’s one of those “How did he do that?” plays.
While Jagr’s seemingly on a little bit of a slower pace in his second season with New Jersey, his 13 points still lead all Devils scorers. With 1,060 career assists, he’s currently ranked eighth all-time, just three behind Steve Yzerman for seventh in league history.
