As you probably would expect, there was an overwhelming response to our contest to win a pair of tickets to the 2013 NHL Draft™ at Prudential Center. Although you were not a winner of tickets, being close to the action is a special feeling for any hockey fan.
Therefore, you are invited to join us for a spectacular 2013 NHL Draft™ Fan Fest presented by Stronger than the Storm that will take place on Championship Plaza beginning at 10:30am and running through 2:30pm. The Fan Fest will feature appearances from Devils Alumni, music from the B Street Band, carnival rides, a Ferris wheel, interactive games, entertainment, food, as well as dual rinks on Mulberry Street hosting a street hockey tournament. Local bars and eateries in the area will also be lined with Devils fans, as the Draft is shown on TVs. Your Devils currently own the 9th overall selection!

We hope to see you next Sunday as Newark hosts yet another marquee event!
What a joke, you can't just buy tickets to the draft? Its not the superbowl, if you want fans to give a sh!t about the draft being in jersey make tickets accessible. They really want people to travel to newark, to stand in their half ass plaza for 9 dollars beers and corny bands just to have to go home right before the draft starts..... What an absolutely atrocious job by the devils. You can't even buy tickets on stubhub. As a die hard fan i would LOVE to spend my money on outrageously priced concessions inside the arena to see a draft where my team has the ninth pick, but apparently JVB and crew don't think that's a good idea. This e-mail is comical. They're trying to entice a grown man to come to downtown newark to ride a ferris wheel..... Jesus christ. Are they trying to get people to bring their kids there? Lets see, Newark or LBI and Point Pleasant, for carnival rides and a bar to watch it on tv.... Just a piss poor job by this organization to give the fans what they want.
