The Devils will be looking to rebound against a very strong and talented Toronto Maple Leafs squad tomorrow night, but the game and that weekend all are special for this organization. This weekend will be full of events for the Hockey Hall of Fame with the Devils’ own legendary goaltender Martin Brodeur set to be inducted. Brodeur will join Devils Hall of Famers Scott Stevens and Scott Niedermayer, along with other former Devils players who received the same honor like Brendan Shanahan, Joe Nieuwendyk,  Dave Andreychuk, and Peter Stastny. The game between New Jersey and Toronto is the Hockey Hall of Fame game this year for the NHL, and the Devils will look to put their best foot forward.

Event Schedule

The Devils and Leafs will play in the Hall of Fame Game on Friday on 7PM ET at Scotiabank Arena. On Saturday, there will be a Q&A fan forum with inductees and the audience, which will include not just Martin Brodeur, among others. Sunday will feature the “Haggar Hockey Hall of Fame Legends Classic” which will be exciting for hockey fans to watch. Finally, the induction ceremony will occur on Monday at 5:30 PM in Toronto at the Hockey Hall of Fame.

The game will start at 3:00 PM. and will take place at Scotiabank Arena, home of the Toronto Maple Leafs. Hopefully there may be a stream as I’m sure a lot of hockey fans would enjoy watching this game. If you are able to get a ticket to go watch the game, go for it, this is truly one of those once in a lifetime events and there are definitely a lot of people who would love to go if they could get the chance.
