NEWARK, N.J. – Devils’ leading-scorer Jaromir Jagr will remain in New Jersey.

The team announced Wednesday that Jagr signed a contract, but didn’t release terms. Jagr led the Devils last season with 24 goals and 43 assists.

The 42-year-old Jagr is currently playing for the Czech Republic at the World Championships in Belarus.

A two-time winner of the Stanley Cup when he played for the Pittsburgh Penguins, Jagr begins next season with 705 goals and 1,050 assists, tied for sixth all-time among NHL scorers.

Jagr is one of three finalists for the Bill Masterton Trophy, given to the player “who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey.”
