These beauts will be used in warm-up and later auctioned off.
Tonight also marks the return of three former Devils to the Rock.

The legendary Martin Brodeur will be gracing the halls of the Rock, as an executive for the Blues.
After retiring, he took up a position in their front office as Assistant General Manager. Broduer spent 22 years in the Devils organization, before retiring in St. Louis in the 2014-2015 season. He is easily one of the reasons why the Devils are where they are in terms of Stanley Cup championships and success.
#30 has become the benchmark that all goalies who done the red and black will be measured against.
Another former Devil, who made a name for himself for New Jersey is Scott Gomez.
His greatest years as a hockey player were with the Devils, especially in his first seven years. In that time, he held Lord Stanley’s Cup twice, becoming an important piece to the Devils’ championship runs in 2000 and 2003.
Martin Havlat makes his season debut for St. Louis, as he returns to New Jersey.
He signed a one-year contract with the Blues after playing on a tryout basis. Havlat played for the Devils one season, in which he registered 14 points in 40 games.
Half the season, he was injured and unable to fully embrace his old stomping grounds.
Tonight should be a memorable one. Old and new faces will be in the building for this special game at the Rock.[su_button url=”https://elitesportsny.com/2015/11/09/rex-ryan-still-doesnt-get-it-appoints-ik-enemkpali-captain-against-new-york-jets/” target=”blank” background=”#000080″ size=”10″ wide=”yes” radius=”0″]NEXT: Rex Still Clueless, Appoints Enemkpali As Captain[/su_button]
