Statements on the loss of Lewis Katz

Newark, NJ (June 1, 2014) – New Jersey Devils President/General Manager Lou Lamoriello today released the following statement in regard to former Devils’ Owner Lewis Katz, who was tragically killed in a plane crash last night in Massachusetts.

"I was shocked this morning to receive the news regarding the loss of one of our former owners, Lewis Katz, along with six others last night. I worked for Mr. Lewis Katz with both the Devils and New Jersey Nets, and experienced first-hand the influence he had on both organizations. Lewis was extremely active in the business community, a philanthropist, and a family man. On behalf of the entire Devils’ organization, our thoughts and prayers go out to the Katz family, as well as the loved ones of the other six casualties."

New Jersey Devils, Prudential Center and Philadelphia 76ers CEO Scott O’Neil on Lewis Katz:

"We are terribly saddened to learn about the untimely passing of such a passionate leader, philanthropist and humanitarian, Lewis Katz. He meant a great deal to all of us as a friend and former owner of the New Jersey Devils. Lewis inspired us with his ongoing efforts to give back and improve his community, about which he cared so deeply. On behalf of the Philadelphia 76ers, Devils and Prudential Center, we send our sincere condolences to the entire Katz family during this difficult time."

National Hockey League Commissioner Gary Bettman:

“The National Hockey League family is stunned and deeply saddened by the loss of former New Jersey Devils owner Lewis Katz. While he was a person of tremendous influence in a variety of businesses, including sports, Lewis was, pure and simple, a great guy who highly prioritized his family and his friends. We send heartfelt condolences to them, to the many organizations that benefited from his philanthropy and to all who were affected by this tragic accident.”

Katz was part of Puck Holdings, which purchased the New Jersey Devils in 2000 and owned the team until 2004.
