A Devils fan on social media captured the eyes of all hockey fans on Twitter on Tuesday when a simple question turned into a six-hour long campaign to win season tickets. Nick Donnelly asked the Devils Twitter account how many retweets it would take to receive free season tickets. After some simple math, the club gave Donnelly a retweet goal of 9,450 for season tickets...He (and the hockey community) answered the bell.

It didn't take long for players and fans to become aware of Nick's cause and immediately shared their support.

Following a skate on Wednesday morning, Adam Henrique shared a message for Nick and welcomed him to The Rock.

The power of the hockey community and social media has surely made the 2017-18 season an experience that Nick Donnelly will never forget. Thanks to the Devils and hockey fan base, Nick will be in attendance at every game this season to watch Cory Schneider, Taylor Hall, Adam Henrique, Nico Hischier, Marcus Johansson and more!
