The Albany Devils hosted the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins down in Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall on Sunday the 25th. It was a great night for hockey in AC. Sunday’s game was the first of four Albany Devils games at Boardwalk Hall this season. I was very excited to see our favorite players on the ice and playing hockey again.
When the New Jersey Devils beat the New York Rangers in the Eastern Conference Finals this past May, everyone anticipated the rematch between Martin Brodeur and Henrik Lundqvist. Little did fans know that it would occur almost six months to the day of Adam Henrique’s series winning goal, that the venue would be Atlantic City, and that the purpose of the game would be raising money for victims of a hurricane that rocked the shores of New Jersey and New York.
Almost 10,800 fans came out to Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City on Saturday night to see Brodeur, Lundqvist, and 32 other NHL players in Operation Hat Trick, a charity game that supported the American Red Cross, the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund, and the Empire State Relief Fund.
Last weekend, the NJ Colonial Coaches hosted the NJ Devil Alumni at Mennen Arena for a benefit hockey game. The “War to Restore NJ, Hockey Night in Morristown” was the brain-child of Sue DeBoer, (Peter DeBoer’s wife) and the first time the NJ Colonial Coaches played the Devils alumni in a charity event. Monies were raised for local charities to assist those in need affected by Hurricane Sandy, including the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund founded by Mary Pat Christie. In addition to 100% of the proceeds going to charity, there was also a food drive for the Interfaith Food Pantry serving the Morris County Area.
Ladies and gentlemen we have us some hockey! Tomorrow night at 7 P.M. Ken Daneyko, Bruce Driver, John MacLean and Sergei Brylin will team up with head coach Peter DeBoer to take on the New Jersey Colonials Coaching Staff at Mennen Arena in Morristown. This is going to be a benefit game to support those affected by Hurricane Sandy.
As Devils fans we know who our cherished alumni are, but if you don’t have kids involved in youth hockey you may not be familiar with the New Jersey Colonials. The New Jersey Colonials are a youth travel hockey organization celebrating 40 years of skating at a highly competitive level. Their Hockey Directors have assembled a winning staff of coaches who have taken their teams to States, Districts and National Championships and have competed for some of the most prestigious Cups in youth hockey.

I’ve been planning a trip to Albany since what would be the start of the NHL season and I wasn’t letting Sandy get in the way. After waiting in a long line for one of the few open gas stations, I filled up my tank and used that precious fuel to drive up to Albany and watch the Albany Devils take on the Connecticut Whale at the Times Union Center. This was my first trip to Albany, here’s what I learned.
