Jagr (illness) practiced fully Tuesday and expects to play Wednesday against the Maple Leafs, Rich Chere of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Jagr is feeling no ill effects of the flu bug that sidelined him prior to the All-Star break. Look for the aging winger to reunite with Adam Henrique and Scott Gomez on a line during Wednesday's match.

Jagr said Monday that he's over his illnesses and will be ready to play Wednesday, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
Jagr was dealing with both the mumps and flu recently, but after resting over All-Star Weekend, he'll be ready to return to the ice for Wednesday's game. Jagr has appeared in 43 games this season, posting nine goals and 16 assists for 25 points while averaging 18:23 of ice time per game.

Jagr (illness) is expected to return to practice Monday, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
Jagr has been skating on his own back in New Jersey since last weekend in an attempt to regain stamina after a nasty bout with the flu. The Devils kept him away from the team during their recently-completed three-game road trip as a precaution, but it looks like the 42-year-old should be ready to go immediately out of the All-Star break. His return to the lineup Wednesday against the Maple Leafs should be verified once he takes part fully in Monday's practice.

GM Lou Lamoriello said Jagr is "very doubtful" to join the Devils at any point during their three-game road trip, Rich Chere of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Jagr had already been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Kings, and with the winger making limited progress in his recovery from the flu, it appears likely the team will just have him rest up through the All-Star break. With Tuomu Ruutu dealing with a similarly debilitating case of the flu, look for either him or Jagr to move to injured reserve Wednesday, as the Devils plan on activating Eric Gelinas (illness).

Jagr (illness) will not travel with the team to Los Angeles for Wednesday's game against the Kings, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
The Devils did not comment on Jagr's status directly, but this presumably rules him out for Wednesday's game. The Devils will play two more games on the road following Wednesday's contest, and it's possible Jagr could join the team later in the road trip if his health improves.

Jagr missed practice Sunday due to an illness, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
Jagr has gone pointless in the three games since becoming the oldest player to record a hat trick, and that could be stretched to four before he even takes the ice Wednesday. Thankfully, the Devils don't play again for three days, so it's possible he will be fine by then, but the team should update his status at some point prior to the opening faceoff against the Kings.

Jagr, who is a month shy of 43, became the oldest NHL player to record a hat trick when he potted three goals in Saturday's win over the Flyers. It was his 15th career hat trick and first since March, 2006.
He moved past Gordie Howe who was 41 in 1969 when he had a three-goal game. Jagr now has 714 goals in his career and is three behind Phil Esposito in fifth place all-time. He also has five points, including four goals, in his last four games, so his fantasy value is also on the rise. #HOF

Jagr scored his sixth goal of the season as the Devils defeated the Penguins 3-1 on Monday.
Jagr is having a down season, along with just about every other New Jersey forward, but the goal still had to feel good coming up against his former team in the Penguins. The tally actually proved to be the game winner making it all the more sweeter.
