Getting into the swing of things for charity

Past and present members of the Devils organization were swinging for the pin Monday at the Upper Montclair Country Club in Clifton, N.J., where they took part in the Ninth Annual Alumni Charity Golf Classic.

The event brought together returning veterans such as Martin Brodeur and Jamie Langenbrunner, as well as alumni such as Ken Daneyko and Hall-of-Famer Scott Stevens.

Devils Alumni Association Director Bruce Driver pointed out that the players' participation is what makes the outing such a success year after year. The perfect weather – 84 degrees and sunny – also helped.

"This is our marquee fundraiser for the year," said Driver, who was a member of New Jersey's 1995 Stanley Cup-winning team. "It really allows us to help charities across the state, like offering scholarships to four senior high school hockey players in New Jersey every year. It's about atmosphere and we have many of our alumni involved and many of our corporate sponsors."

The afternoon of golf gave offseason acquistion Brian Rolston a chance to meet some of his teammates for the upcoming year. Rolston, a Devil from 1994 to 1999 who signed with the club as a free agent in July, was eager to see members of past Devils teams, as well as the one that will compete in 2008-09.

"It's good to come out and see my new teammates and some of the guys that were here my first time around," Rolston said. "It's fun to be back and I'm excited to be in New Jersey."

For second-year forward David Clarkson, the day brought an opportunity to get to know some of the players responsible for the team's championship tradition. And with training camp now just days away, it was a charitable reason to come together one last time before officially beginning preparations for the year ahead.

"It's a privilege to meet the alumni and get back at things," Clarkson said. "I think everyone's itching to get started again and have a good season this year. It's nice to be back."

Once the golf had concluded, Devils' radio play-by-play announcer Matt Loughlin emceed an auction of Devils items such as Prudential Center suite service for 16 fans on opening night against the New York Islanders; a Zamboni ride; and a framed lithograph signed by Brodeur, Daneyko and forward Patrik Elias commemorating New Jersey's 2003 championship.
