The New Jersey Devils will host a weekend of festivities to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their first Stanley Cup Championship.

On the weekend of March 7-8, the Devils organization will host a variety of activities to recognize the 1995 Championship team. More than 20 players and coaches will come together for this weekend at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ.

The festivities will kick off on Saturday afternoon at the AmeriHealth Pavilion with an alumni game. Players from the 1995 Championship team will take the ice together again to raise money for charity. Specific rosters and ticket information will be released soon.

The weekend activities will lead up to the Devils’ rivalry game against the Philadelphia Flyers on Sunday, March 8 at 5:00 p.m. Before the game, the Devils will hold a pregame ceremony to honor the 1995 Championship team.

“We are all looking forward to welcoming the coaches, players and staff, as well as their families, from our first championship team back here to New Jersey,” said Devils’ President and General Manager Lou Lamoriello. “That was a team with tremendous character, with great coaches, great players and quality individuals. They set the standard to which all of our other teams have been compared to.”

Fans can find updates and ticket information on the new Devils’ webpage for “Celebrating the ’95 Cup.” Fans can purchase the ’95 Stanley Cup Ticket Pack for the game against the Flyers on March 8, which includes a limited edition t-shirt.

The package also includes tickets for games against all three Eastern Conference teams that the Devils defeated in 1995 to reach the Stanley Cup Finals. These games include the Boston Bruins on Feb 27, Philadelphia Flyers on March 8 and the Pittsburgh Penguins on March 17.

Even though she’s from New Jersey, the Devils will always come second to her Boston Bruins. Living in a family full of Devils fans and college full of Penguins fans, her Bruins memorabilia is often chirped– but she accepts that’s what you get when you cheer for an out-of-state team. She loves following the game no matter who’s playing, though. Twitter: @DaniSanGiacomo
