New Jersey Devils defenseman Battella is wearing his old jersey.
He’s worn it for over 30 years and is happy to have it back.
Battelli was in attendance at the Devils’ morning skate and told reporters that he’s happy with the jersey he wore for the past 30 years.
He told reporters he is happy that it is back and is looking forward to seeing it on the ice in New Jersey when the Devils host the Islanders.
Battenelli said he will wear it when he returns home to India.
“I just want to say thanks to my teammates, coaches, fans and everyone who has supported me in this journey,” Battellini said.
He will wear the jersey on Friday against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
He is expected to return to the Devils lineup on Sunday, as he was expected to do Monday.
