During the second session of training camp, 41-year-old Jaromir Jagr left the ice with an apparent injury. According to the Devils, the reason for Jagr’s departure on the opening day of camp was “soreness,” and they had no further update.

The Devils reported that Jagr appeared to be wincing shortly after coming on to the ice for their second session. He later left for the locker room and did not return.

While these kinds of injuries are common at the start of the season, his age and injuries during the Bruins final games last season are of some concern. During Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals, Jagr was in and out of the locker room with a leg injury.

After losing some key players this off-season, it is crucial for the Devils to have a healthy Jagr in their lineup. Hopefully, for New Jersey, his injury, or “soreness”, will not be long term.

Even though she’s from New Jersey, the Devils will always come second to her Boston Bruins. Living in a family full of Devils fans and college full of Penguins fans, her Bruins memorabilia is often chirped– but she accepts that’s what you get when you cheer for an out-of-state team. She loves following the game no matter who’s playing, though. Twitter: @DaniSanGiacomo
