UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) - Jaromir Jagr hit the ice with the New York Rangers on Friday night for the first time since his dislocated left shoulder was repaired nearly five months ago.

Jagr, injured twice during New York's first-round playoff loss to New Jersey in the spring, hopped off the bench within the opening two minutes as the Rangers and rival Islanders were skating 4-on-4.

The sparse crowd, which included large pockets of fans supporting each team, cheered, groaned and grew more vocal when Jagr touched the puck for the first time deep in his own zone.

Jagr, the NHL MVP runner-up last season, skated in the offensive end on the same shift - carrying the puck from the left-wing boards toward the centre of the ice - before the puck was knocked off his stick by Islanders defenceman Radek Martinek 1:40 into the game.

Later in the period, Jagr skated with regular linemates Brendan Shanahan and Michael Nylander and drew a hooking penalty on Miroslav Satan when the Islanders forward held him up high in the offensive zone.
