Devils to Host Hispanic Heritage Night | RELEASE – New Jersey Devils

NEWARK, NJ (October 28, 2022) – The New Jersey Devils will host their Hispanic Heritage Night presented by Hijole! tonight, when they face off against the Colorado Avalanche for a 7 PM puck drop at Prudential Center. The Devils will wear specialty warm-up jerseys to commemorate the night, which will be Hispanic Heritage-themed and were created in collaboration with local artist, Illkya Acosta, who was selected in partnership with the New Jersey State Council on the Arts and Newark Arts.
The specialty warm-up jerseys, whose images were inspired by Inti, which is an ancient Incan sun deity featured on multiple Latin American flags and coat of arms. The sun represents energy, light, empowerment, and warmth. The colors used in the jersey portray the dance of gratitude, joy, resilience, and sacrifice of a Latinx individual or family. They also represent a variety of flora from select Latin America countries. Additionally, the colors are a nod to the celebration of Dia De Los Muertos. There will also be t-shirts inspired by the warm-up jerseys available for purchase. The jerseys will be available for auction beginning at 7 p.m. tonight and will run through November 4th. Fans can participate in the warm-up jersey auction here and purchase t-shirts here.
“It’s an honor to collaborate with the Devils in recognizing the Latinx and Hispanic people in New Jersey,” said artist Illkya Acosta. “I feel gratified to rep my home state and heritage. I want the community to know that they are valued, seen, heard, and cherished. And I hope that this work can help shed some light, bridge some gaps, and inspire.”

The Devils Youth Foundation will donate the net proceeds from the auction to La Casa de Don Pedro, an organization that responds to the needs of Greater Newark, New Jersey’s communities with comprehensive programs that empower people and revitalize neighborhoods. La Casa de Don Pedro was recently named the recipient of a $100,000 Devils Youth Foundation grant, which provides the La Casa de Don Pedro facility with a brand new “El Patio de La Casa”- a revitalized area to serve as a vibrant community hub modeled after a Caribbean Plaza with safe spaces for children to play, attend concerts, have a neighborhood communal refrigerator and enjoy festivals. El Patio de La Casa’s subsequent community programming will serve over 800 youth in Newark annually. The group will be in attendance at the game and will be recognized during an intermission.
