|Dino Pallotta and friends with Vanderbeek and Gilfillan at Mellon Arena on Nov. 12. LEARN MORE ABOUT FROZEN OVER
Devils season tickets put you right in the middle of all the action. But if you thought you already knew what our ticket plans had to offer, think again.
The return of Frozen Over benefits for new plan holders and early renewals turns your investment into an experience. Ticket holders who took advantage of the perks last season found the Devils' deals to be unforgettable.
Dino Palotta’s purchase of season tickets earned him a trip to Pittsburgh to see the Devils battle the Penguins on the road.
“This event continues to be the highlight of the year for all of us,” Palotta said. “We anticipated having a fun night out. What we got was an event that exceeded our expectations.”
He and three companions boarded a private plane with Devils Chairman and Managing Partner Jeff Vanderbeek and Co-Owner Mike Gilfillan to cheer on the Devils in the Steel City.
“From the moment Jeff and Mike arrived at the airport and for the entire trip we received royal treatment,” Palotta said. “We expected a flight on a small corporate plane, what we got was a flight of a lifetime on a luxurious executive jet. We expected to eat hot dogs and fries at the game – we got dinner at the Capital Grill and private box seating at the arena.”
One Super Prize drawing will be held every day from April 1-17. All plan holders who pay in full before the 17th are eligible, and an early payment means more chances to win!
This year’s prizes include trips for four to see the 2011 NHL Winter Classic, the NHL Awards in Las Vegas, and the NHL Entry Draft in Los Angeles. Other prizes include a fully catered luxury suite to a Devils 2010 playoff game, or a pre-game dinner with Vanderbeek and Devils’ President, CEO, and General Manager Lou Lamoriello.
As a bonus, choose from one of several bonus prizes. Donna Zushma earned a rare treat when she sounded the goal horn at a Devils game.
“The experience was amazing!” Zushma said. “I would do it again. As a fan, I took for granted all that goes on behind the scenes and it gave me a new appreciation for the people that bring it all together. Winning the game was just the icing on the cake! I couldn’t have asked for a better prize!”
Jerri Rettig’s ticket plan got her a shot at the big screen. For her prize, she chose to become a Jr. Devils Dancer for one night. She rehearsed with the Devils Dancers before performing a live dance routine that was shown on the scoreboard during a game.
“When the game was through, I was overwhelmed by the reaction I received from the fans,” said Rettig. “Literally, hundreds of people reached out to me, talked to me, congratulated and complimented me in the halls and Goal Bar. It was a wonderful night and something I will remember forever.”
Gary Haszko’s night as a gameday “intern” earned him an ice-level view of a game, a trip to the WFAN radio booth and a visit to Prudential Center’s suites to rub elbows with the alumni.
“The view from the ice is a hundred times better than any seat in the arena,” Haszko said. “It was a surreal moment to look around and see what the players get to see. It truly was the best game ever! I cannot believe I had the opportunity to be an intern and I would do it again any day.”
