WEST ORANGE, N.J., Nov. 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- JAG Physical Therapy (JAG PT), a comprehensive outpatient physical therapy company, announced today that Bryce Salvador, the former captain of the New Jersey Devils, will be JAG PT's official ambassador.
"The goal of this partnership is for Bryce to extend our message of health, injury prevention, and rehabilitation to support local hockey athletes and their families," said John Gallucci Jr., President and CEO of JAG Physical Therapy. "JAG PT has a long and successful relationship with the New Jersey Devils, and we look forward to bringing the first-class resources that our professional teams receive to the local hockey community."
Salvador spent 14 seasons in the National Hockey League, before retiring in 2015. The defenseman began his NHL career in St. Louis in 2000 and spent seven years with the Blues. In 2008, Salvador was traded to the Devils, where he played his final seven seasons. In 2012, Salvador was named team captain, just the tenth man to hold this honor in Devils' history. Bryce remained captain until his retirement following the 2014-2015 campaign.
"I've always had the passion for helping kids enrich their lives through playing the sport of hockey," said Salvador. "Unfortunately, injuries are part of playing sports, and receiving the correct medical treatment is vital to one's ability to safely return to play. What I've witnessed during my post-NHL career is that there is a lack of grassroots support and education for families who are dealing with sports-related injuries. Through my partnership with John Gallucci and his entire medical team at JAG PT, we will bring awareness and education of sports injuries, recovery, and injury prevention to youth athletes and their families."
