This is next level dedication, no? Jack Hughes was widely considered the best overall prospect in the 2019 NHL Entry Draft, leading most of us sane folks to assume the New Jersey Devils would select him with the top pick. Fandom, however, often defies basic logic. One Devils fan wasn't taking any chances.
This was nearly every single day. Seriously.
Were the Devils likely to forget? Absolutely not, as New Jersey's front office had Hughes pinned as the top selection for weeks leading up to the draft, even as Kaapo Kakko led Finland to the IIHF World Championship title. They never wavered. But Devils fans have been through the ringer lately, and can't afford to take any chances.
Hockey fans are always a little crazier than most. Please, please like our sport.
