#RELENTLESS Fan of the Game: Dawn Klotz

by Gordy Stillman / New Jersey Devils
Dawn Klotz has been a season ticket member and New Jersey Devils fan since the team came to New Jersey in 1982. A native of Morristown, Klotz said she's become a fast fan of Joseph Blandisi, who made his NHL and Devils debut earlier this season.

NAME: Dawn Klotz

AGE: 56


HOMETOWN: Morristown

CAREER: I work in account management.

I HAVE BEEN A SEASON TICKET MEMBER FOR: The Devils' entire history. I’ve been with them since that very first game in October 1982.

I HAVE BEEN A DEVILS FAN SINCE: 1982. I remember entering the then-new arena in the Meadowlands. It was fun and exhilarating. I was very much a hockey fan before the Devils came to town. My dad used to take us to see the Rangers, but it was nice to have our own team in New Jersey.

BEFORE EVERY DEVILS GAME, I MAKE SURE: I always wear my Devils gear. Sometimes it’s a shirt, sometimes it’s a jersey, and I always wear my Devils earrings. Tonight they’re Devils heart-shaped earrings that are new for this season. I’ve got a collection to choose from on game days.

YOU WOULD BE SURPRISED TO KNOW THAT: I’m pretty good at pond hockey.

MY FAVORITE CURRENT PLAYER IS: Joseph Blandisi. He’s only been with the team for a short time but I like him. He’s young and fun to watch, easily becoming a fast favorite.

IF I COULD ASK HIM ONE THING: How did you get started when you first began playing hockey?

MY FAVORITE MARTY MOMENT IS: His goal against the Canadiens. It was exciting and he was exciting to watch. To see a goalie get a goal, I had never seen that before.

MY FAVORITE PIECE OF DEVILS MEMORABILIA IS: I have a poster of the Crash Line—Randy McKay, Bobby Holik and Mike Peluso— signed by the players. I got the poster as a giveaway from the team and I got the signatures at signing events.

I AM #RELENTLESS BECAUSE: Whether the weather is good or bad, I’m here every game. I’ve even gone to a couple of away games, including trips to Phoenix, Florida and Ottawa.
