A fan’s dream comes true after a year of anticipation.
The North Jersey Devils fans will finally get to see the NHL team play in person.
This year, they can choose from North Jersey jerseys, jerseys with their team colors and the 2018 Stanley Cup.
North Jersey Devils fan Michael Korski bought a pair of season tickets to the team’s home opener at Barclays Center on March 15.
He said he was initially excited when he learned the ticketing would be free, but he knew he would have to wait until the season began.
The team’s opening night was postponed for the remainder of the season.
He said he paid about $100 to buy season tickets.
Korski said he also got to try out the 2018 Honda CR-V as a fan during a visit to the North Jersey rink.
He had planned to watch a game against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Instead, he said he saw the Devils go on a 4-2 run in the second period.
He was excited to see his favorite team play for the first time in years.
The season opener was one of the biggest disappointments for the Devils.
The club finished a disappointing third in the Eastern Conference.
The only bright spot was a 4.5-point home win over the Philadelphia Flyers.
But the team has returned to the playoffs after three straight seasons of futility.
The Devils are in the playoffs for the third time in four seasons.
They were a wild card team in the NHL Expansion Draft last summer and finished ninth in the conference with a 7-14-1 record.
The team will take on the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday at PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh.
