New Jersey Devils fans have something to cheer about after one the most bizarre weekends in franchise history.
One of Jersey’s wishes came to fruition when the team announced on Tuesday that forward Nico Hischier would replace Kyle Palmieri at the 2019-20 NHL All-Star Game in St. Louis on Sat. Jan. 25.

The Devils’ hungry fanbase wasted no time celebrating their 2017 No.
