On January 22nd, 1987, a blizzard hit New Jersey that, by all logic, should have been more than reasonable grounds for postponing the Devils game scheduled for that night. But the powers that be decided that the show must go on, and the face-off with the Calgary Flames would proceed as planned.
Braving a foot of snow and insane road conditions, 334 dedicated fans decided that a little blizzard wasn’t going to keep them from making their way to the Meadowlands that night. When they arrived, they were treated to a virtually empty arena where they were allowed to sit wherever they wanted to witness the action-packed 7-5 win.
In appreciation of the fans’ extreme loyalty, a Devils representative went around the building taking the names and info of all the brave souls in attendance that night. They were later presented with special shirts and pins and became known as “The 334 Club” and honorary members of the New Jersey Devils family.
To commemorate the 30th anniversary of that night, Packer and Starter are teaming up once again with a special limited edition run of the classic white satin Devils jacket in honor of “The 334 Club”
