'The Devil' revealed as eighth NHL Guardian
Introducing the Guardian Project's hero for New Jersey, the Devil.
The Devil

The Devil, being a Devil, is mischievous and likes to play practical jokes on all the other Guardians. He is proud to be from New Jersey and is inspired by all the great people who hail from the Garden State.  He's aware that his appearance doesn't exactly scream "one of the good guys" so he goes out of his way to make sure people, especially kids, understand he is one. 

Of course the evil villains the Guardians are up against know he's not someone to be messed with. He honestly enjoys confrontation and he's not afraid to jump into any situation with attitude. He's a bipedal humanoid with hoofed feet, a horse's head and the wings of a giant bat, reminiscent of the "Jersey Devil" from which he takes his name. He has the ability to withstand any heat and breathes fire.  He doesn't merely defeat his opponents, he annihilates them. He has a whip-like tail that is comprised of flexible titanium and has barbed hooks at the end. In a fight there is simply no one better to have by your side.
Quote of the Day

We have no doubt how he can play. You don't, with four teams that are left, you're not getting here without good goaltending. All great goalies left, and [Bishop] is a top-tier goaltender in this league and he's shown it.

— Lightning coach Jon Cooper on goalie Ben Bishop, who shut out the Rangers in Game 5
