Old Devils Mascot "Slapshot"

65 posts in this topic

thanks, I appreciate you looking either way.
 

 

That's the only one I have. It's a scan of an old photo. I should still have it on my PC at home. I'll add it to this thread if I find it.

They still have the Slapshot suit in the team office, although they'll never publicly show him.. They dug it up during the warehouse move from Meadowlands to PruCenter

I would still kill for the "puck run amuck" segment A Current Affair did on him.

Maybe you'll find it on youtube someday.  I never saw that, must be pretty funny to watch

thanks for the info.  They should bring him out sometime and go with 2 mascots, just bring in people that can pass background checks

They should bring him back for the Retro games but their policy is that he never see the light of day.. I don't agree with that, I mean, how many people even know Slapshot or the incident? Is it really still too soon to move on? I don't think people what he did exactly

While I think a good amount of our fanbase doesn't remember him or even knew he existed, just one Google search for him and you bring up the incident.  Plus he wasn't that great of a mascot so I really do not miss him.

I know someone had mentioned it earlier on this post or asked about it, but do you guys know how many versions of NJ Devil have there been?  I know he came out after slap shot and we have the current version which you could see in the video that skeeter was nice enough to share.  Than there was the mexican looking version that someone else had mentioned (and someone posted a pic of him signing autographs).  Is it just those 2 or have there been others?

I know there was one where he had more pronounced mustache.  He kinda looked like Raul Julia from the Addams Family movies.  His current mustache now looks more like John Waters.

 

The early incarnations of him had him with small red wings on him as well.  They got rid of those after a year or two.

 

He also had a pretty pronounced goatee for a while that just seemed to disappear over the years.  I think he wore that in the late 90's/early 2000's but cannot confirm.

I was gonna post the "Harlem Shake" vid but figured someone else would do it for me. Honestly...probably one of the funniest ones I've seen. I can't believe they brought out Slapshot HAHHAHAHAH

Great example with the Addams family.  I knew he reminded me of someone but I couldn't put my finger on it

Could you imagine if Lou walked by as they were filming that?

There'd be a mass firing! That area is clearly located in the designated No Fun Zone! There are signs posted....
