In his first year in New Jersey, Jaromir Jagr was voted as the Devils' most valuable player by his teammates for the 2013-2014 season.

The New Jersey Devils hosted their annual team awards ceremony this afternoon at the Prudential Center, where Jagr, Ryan Carter and Andy Greene were recognized by their peers.

Ryan Carter, in his third season with the Devils, took home the award for Players' Player while defenseman Andy Greene was named the clubs Unsung Hero for the second time.

Jagr's MVP title comes as no surprise, as the 42-year-old leads the Devils with 64 points, collecting 24 goals and 40 assists in 79 games this season.

Greene, the two-time Unsung Hero recipient, has eight goals and 24 assists through 79 games. His 32 points, which is second-best as far as blue liners for New Jersey this season, is his best production since 2009-2010 when he won the award, finishing the season with 37 points (six goals, 31 assists).

Left wing Ryan Carter currently has six goals, which matches last year's goal total. In 59 games this season, Carter has nine points (six goals, three assists), 35 penalty minutes and two game-winning goals.
