First and foremost, the Devils Generals would like to sincerely thank all who participated in the Devils Generals Hurricane Relief Party at Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza in Clifton, Ramsey and Edison. Because of your attendance and generous donations, we were able to raise $4,800!
Your generosity will make an immediate difference in the lives of the victims of Hurricane Sandy. We pulled together as a hockey community to help out those in dire need of basic necessities and support. What a shining example of the holiday spirit.
As the Holiday Season is upon us, we find ourselves reflecting on the past year and on those who make the Devils Army the greatest fans in the NHL. We value our relationship with you and wish you a very happy Holiday Season and a New Year filled with peace and prosperity.
The Devils Generals
I’m not sure about all of you, but I know that life without hockey is rough. The New Jersey Devils have been doing their best for their season ticket holders with weekly fan giveaways, a chance to get your pictures taken at the Rock for the Holidays and tonight, the first ever “Greet n’ Eat” get together.
Starting at 7pm tonight, the season ticket holders get the opportunity to enjoy free food, raffles prizes, autographs and more. Rumor has it the Devils have added a new alumni to the list and you’ll be able to meet him tonight! The event kicks off at the PNC Tower and then you have the opportunity to visit some of the local restaurants that Newark has to offer. You can stay at one location, or you can “crawl” from place to place. Participating restaurants include: Edison Ale House, Dinosaur Bar-B-Que, Loft 47, and Brick City Bar and Grill.
It’s been awhile since I’ve seen everyone (almost 6 months), and I’m looking forward to seeing everyone and wishing everyone Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year!!
With more NHL games canceled it was time to make my way to another AHL game. Last month I went to the Times Union Center in Albany to watch the Devils at home, so this time I decided to head into enemy territory – Hartford, Connecticut. Here are a few things I learned from the XL Center and the Connecticut Whale.
1. Corner seats are pretty amazing.
Since AHL tickets are more affordable then tickets to any NHL game, I’ve been taking advantage and sitting right on the glass. I know, I know, you can’t see a thing that close but I rarely have a chance to sit in these seats at the Prudential Center so I’m going for it while I can. For this game I tried corner seats and they were awesome! You get to be right up there for all the corner battles and big hits. You can hear the puck sliding along the boards at your feet and come face to face with pucks that are shot wide. I may or may not have jumped up a couple times thanks to high flying pucks.
Wondering what to get for that Devils fan in you life? Here are just a few ideas!
Tickets for an Albany Devils game. The NHL may not be playing, but there is some hard-hitting action in the AHL! The Albany Devils will be playing three games at historic Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City in January and February. Boardwalk Hall provides an intimate setting to watch the stars of the future and New Jersey Devils players like Adam Larsson and Jacob Josefson. The Albany Devils take on the Bridgeport on January 13, Adirondack on January 20, and Hershey on February 24. Visit ticketmaster.com to purchase tickets.
