The New Jersey Devils Beach Bash was a hit for the third summer in a row. Devils fans were treated to a beautiful day at Point Pleasant with beach games, food, a shooting booth and — oh — former and current Devils players.
Keith Kinkaid, Kyle Palmieri and Travis Zajac were representing the black and red last Saturday, meeting with fans, taking pictures and sharing their hockey knowledge. xHockeyProducts’ own Bryce Salvador joined Ken Daneyko and Bruce Driver to represent the New Jersey alumni.
It was well attended and the Devils’ players were thrilled to see such a great turnout just a few months after bowing out of the 2018 playoffs.
“You don’t realize how many Jersey fans are out there,” said Zajac, a native of Winnipeg, Manitoba. “Not only in Jersey, but in the U.S. and Canada. When I go back home, they’re everywhere. It’s great support for this team. More support than I’ve seen for other teams and more loyalty, whether things go right or wrong. They’re always there to have our back.”
The kick-off has ushered in the new season for the past three years, and there was plenty of exciting moments to go around.
Take a look at Salvador showing off his goal-scoring prowess and earning the new nickname Snipin’ Sal.
Although the event was a blast for all parties involved, fans and players alike are hoping for yet another playoff berth after a five-year absence.
Hopefully there will be even more to celebrate at next year’s event.
