New Jersey Devils Social Media Guide

In comparison to some other teams in the NHL, the New Jersey Devils fan base isn’t quite the size of some others (think Toronto, Montreal, Detroit), but their diehard fans are just as passionate as anyone in the league. Their desire and thirst for any and all information, news or rumors regarding their team is a 365-day endeavor; and in today’s day and age where updates travel across the information highway at light speed the best way to follow your team on a daily basis is through social media. We’ve compiled a list of great sources of information on Jersey’s only professional sports franchise that will be subject to updates and additions as time goes on.

Beat Writers:

Two fantastic writers cover the Devils on a day-in & day-out basis: Tom Gulitti of The Bergen Record and Rich Chere of the Newark Star Ledger. Gulitti (TG) has covered the Devs for the Record since 2002 and his Fire and Ice blog is the go-to source for daily Devils updates. Chere has been covering the team since its inception in 1982 and like TG, the diehards follow his every tweet and every article — perhaps even more during the offseason for great insight, interviews and articles.

Both men are at just about every practice, game and press conference; at home and on the road.

New Jersey Devils:

The team’s website is constantly updated with fresh content and both its Twitter and Facebook pages are active, with interactive guessing games, updates on alumni and community outreach programs, contests with giveaways as well as updates during games.

Best of the Rest:

Along with the beat writers, there are some other great sources of information regarding the team, ranging from broadcasters to newspaper writers to website writers. The Maven doesn’t always cover the Devils exclusively anymore (he also covers the Islanders & Rangers for MSG Network), but he is still a wealth of knowledge and has likely forgotten more hockey than all of us know about combined.

Connect With Fans, Make Friends, Get Autographs:

Just about everyone has a Facebook page nowadays, and one of the best Devils fan-run pages on there is Devils All Day All Night. As the creator Vic Cruz (not Victor Cruz of the NY Giants) says: ‘the idea is for everyone to have fun.’ His company Lunatic Sports & Entertainment helps in organizing signings & meet-and-greets with current and former Devils players (as well as other sports stars).

    The Devils fanbase is larger than what most think, never will be as big as Leafs, Habs, Bruins, Hawks, Flyers, but, it’s in the top half of the league in numbers and in the top-10 in passion/loyalty.
