DEVILS: Patrik Elias, New Jersey’s all-time leading scorer, is retiring after a career that spanned almost two decades and included two Stanley Cup titles.

The 40-year-old native of the Czech Republic announced his retirement in a statement Friday. A free agent after last season, he had knee surgery in May and did not sign a contract this season.

Elias played all of his 18 NHL seasons with the Devils, becoming the team’s franchise leader in goals (408), assists (617) and points (1,025).

FLYERS: Philadelphia signed sought-after college center Mike Vecchione to one-year entry-level contract.

Agent Lewis Gross said in a text message to The Associated Press that Vecchione would play for the Flyers this season. Philadelphia has five games remaining. General Manager Ron Hextall confirmed that Vecchione would play for the team this season but added that the 24-year-old’s NHL debut probably wouldn’t come Saturday against the New Jersey Devils.
