I know this is random but does anyone have any pictures of the old mascot? Also, anyone have a list/pics of all the mascots the NJ Devils used? Thanks. (PS I tried Googling Slapshot but nothing came up) I think the CAPS mascot is called slapshot or something like that.

I was at the Fraser signing we talked about the Retro jerseys. He says the team is excited to wear them and Clarkson was running around the locker room with his red helmet on like a madman.

As someone who missed out, what was Slapshot supposed to be? If NJ Devil retires, is Chuck the Duck next in line?

Slapshot was a puck with Devil horns. Who was fond of playing grabass. There's a black and white picture floating around somewhere.

Was a really awful mascot.

To be fair who isn't a fan of grabass. Just what you dress while you do it is different for most of us.

Pucks are a lot less dangerous without a hockey stick.

Ahahaa there he is. Did the Devils have anyone prior to him, and besides Baumann?


Also, isnt this the 2nd iteration of NJ Devil? I remember the early days when he drove out on the ice on an ATV with "Bad to the Bone" playing. He looked Mexican back then. I have an autographed photo somewhere, where hes sitting on the said ATV.

EDIT
Here it is lol

And todays (Woah watch those hands NJ, you dont wanna get canned lol)
