Marcel Dionne is fifth all-time with 731g-1,040a-1,771pts. Jagr’s 705 career goals are just three behind Mike Gartner (708g) for sixth place all-time. His 1,050a places him just 13 helpers behind Yzerman for seventh in league history. In addition, Jagr’s next game played will be the 1,474th of his career, tying Doug Gilmour for 19th all-time. Jagr is also just two power play goals behind Yzerman (202 PPG) for 15th and is 45 shots behind Al MacInnis for third place in NHL history.
  • Among goaltenders that have played in at least 100 games since the start of the 2010-11 season, Cory Schneider ranks first with a 2.05 goals-against average (2nd, J. Quick, 2.14) and a .928 save-percentage (2nd, T. Rask, 2.14). Schneider finished his first season in New Jersey with a 1.97 GAA, which ranked third in the NHL and first among goaltenders who appeared in at least 35 games. Schneider posted the third-best single-season GAA in franchise history behind Martin Brodeur’s 1996-97 (1.88 GAA) and 1997-98 (1.89 GAA) campaigns.
  • Patrik Elias enters the season with career totals of 393g-590a-983pts in 1,155 games. He’s looking to become just the 91st player in league history to reach the 400-goal mark, the 79th to collect 600 assists, the 80th to compile 1,000 points and the 101st to appear in 1,200 games.
  • Jaromir Jagr (705-1,050a-1,755pts), Patrik Elias (393g-590a-983pts) are the two highest-scoring players from the Czech Republic in NHL history, while Martin Havlat (236g-343a-579pts) ranks third among active players and 15th all-time. Tomas Kaberle (87g-476a-573pts), who was invited to Devils’ training camp on a try-out basis, is the second-highest scoring Czech defenseman in league history behind Roman Hamrlik (155g-483a-638pts) and is 17th overall. Marek Zidlicky is fifth among all Czech blue-liners with 78g-289a-367pts and 27th overall.
  • Mike Cammalleri has scored 85 power play goals since the start of the 2005-06 season, which ranks ninth among active players and 11th overall during that span.
  • Dainius Zubrus has appeared in 480 games with New Jersey, while Andy Greene enters the season with 477 games played with the Devils. They are looking to become the 24th/25th players in team history to reach the 500 games-played mark. Greene would be just the eighth defenseman to reach that milestone.
  • Goaltender Scott Clemmensen was signed as a free agent on July 1, rejoining New Jersey for the third time. The only player who’s had three separate stints playing for the Devils, having played for another NHL team (or teams) between each New Jersey tenure, is Pascal Rheaume (1996-97, 2002-03, 2005-06).
  • Tryouts Ryan Carter, Ruslan Fedotenko, Scott Gomez, Tomas Kaberle, Mike Komisarek and Jordin Tootoo boast a combined 527g-1,398a-1,925pts in 4,284 NHL games played. The veterans have also compiled 68g-137a-205pts in 471 playoff contests and have a total of six Stanley Cup Championships between them (Carter, Ana., 2006-07; Fedotenko, TB, 2003-04, Pit., 2008-09; Gomez, NJ 1999-2000 & 2002-03; Kaberle, Bos., 2010-11).
  • New Jersey was 228/264 (86.4%) on the penalty-kill in 2013-14 and led the league for the second time in the last three seasons. In 2011-12, the Devils allowed a league-low and team record 27 power plays goals, with an NHL modern era record 89.6% (previously, Dallas, 89.3% 1999-00).
  • The Devils averaged 8.0 PIM-per-game last season, which was second in the league behind Carolina’s 7.9. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, New Jersey and Carolina became the first two teams to average eight-or-fewer since Pittsburgh (7.4) and Chicago (7.9) did so in 1967-68.
  • On Apr. 10 vs. the New York Islanders, New Jersey lost its 17th consecutive shootout dating back to Mar. 15, 2013 at Philadelphia, extending its NHL-record losing streak. Reid Boucher was the Devils’ first shooter on Dec. 4 vs. Montreal and scored to snap New Jersey’s NHL record (tie, Tampa Bay, ‘09) stretch of 20 consecutive shootout attempts without a goal. New Jersey was 4/45 (8.9%) in overall attempts in 2013-14.
