NEWARK, NJ - Saturday was the final home pre-season game for the Devils. The next time the team plays at Prudential Center, it's for real.

While the fans in attendance were treated to a 4-3 victory over the New York Islanders and two goals from Jesper Boqvist, they were also treated to some memorable experiences prior to the game.

Tweet from @NJDevils: Fan Fest was a success

The Devils players who were not in the lineup against the Islanders took part in multiple activations around the Prudential Center, allowing fans a chance to interact with some of their hockey heroes.

2019 first-overall pick Jack Hughes manned the register at the Devils team store and treated fans to autographs and giveaways, including some of his No. 86 jerseys.

Tweet from @NJDevils: New job for @jackhughes43?

He made several fans' nights, including Ryan who wrote the following on Twitter:

Tweet from @rlorello97: Made this Hughes jersey for the fan fest in June (Thinking he was gunna be 43) Tonight he was signing in the store before the game. I told him that was me. HE SAID GO TAKE AN 86 OFF THE SHELF!! And signed it too! Thank you so much Jack !!! I cant stop shaking !

Several Devils players took to the stands during warmups to mingle with fans and sign autographs.

And prior to the game, some lucky, young Devils fans had the chance to play ball hockey with some players.
