NAME: Dan Spindler

TWITTER HANDLE: @Dan_Spindler

I HAVE BEEN A SEASON TICKET MEMBER FOR: Four years

I HAVE BEEN A DEVILS FAN SINCE: Since the team came to New Jersey. My dad brought me to my first game when the Devils hosted the Pittsburgh Penguins. I don’t remember if we won or not, but it was against Pittsburgh in the Mario Lemiuex days. Off that I built a passion for watching and playing the sport.

BEFORE EVERY DEVILS GAME, I MAKE SURE: I always wear my Ken Daneyko jersey. The Jersey has pins from a lot of the special games I’ve attended, including the Stanley Cup Finals, the Stadium Series and the 1995 Stanley Cup 20th Anniversary. It also has six signatures, including my all-time favorite player, Ken Daneyko. I also like to get here early and see pregame warmups.

YOU WOULD BE SURPRISED TO KNOW THAT: My 8-year-old daughter, Abby, is a black belt in Tae Kwon Do

MY FAVORITE CURRENT PLAYER IS: Eric Gelinas. I like his big defensive presence.

IF I COULD ASK HIM ONE THING: I’d ask who he wants to model his game after. Does he want to be more like Scott Stevens or a more offensive-minded skater?

MY FAVORITE MARTY MOMENT IS: I was at the game when he broke the all-time wins record, and it was pretty special to see him cut down the net. We will never in the lifetime of hockey see someone touch that record. He’s a very special player and as a franchise, we are lucky to have been able to see a superstar on the team.

MY FAVORITE PIECE OF DEVILS MEMORABILIA IS: I’ve collected all of the tickets from every game I’ve gone to, and in my “man cave,” I display all of those tickets. I’ve got more than 200 of them.

I AM #RELENTLESS BECAUSE: I want to be a true fan and show my kids what it means to be a Devils fan.
