SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) Jaromir Jagr hasn't won the Stanley Cup since 1992. The Florida Panthers have never hoisted hockey's holiest grail, chasing it since their inception in 1993.

And now their paths will surprisingly align, with hope of completing those quests.

Chasing a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, the Panthers acquired Jagr - who turned 43 earlier this month - from the New Jersey Devils on Thursday for two draft picks, a second-rounder this year and either Florida or Minnesota's third-round selection in 2016.
