New Jersey Devils forward Adam Henrique submitted his entry Thursday for a contest in which fans can design backup goalie Keith Kinkaid's new pads. 

Tweet from @AdamHenrique: . @NJDevils I call them ���The Pads of Seduction��� inspired by @steviegio11! I hope you like them @Blockaid1

Henrique put the face of former Devils forward and unrestricted free agent Stephen Gionta onto the body of "Seinfeld" character George Costanza, played by actor Jason Alexander, and Kinkaid approves.

Tweet from @Blockaid1: @AdamHenrique @NJDevils @steviegio11 They're perfect. What do you guys think @VaughnHockey ?

Gionta also is a fan of Henrique's design and is hopeful that it will be used on Kinkaid's new pads.

Tweet from @steviegio11: LOL!!!!!!@AdamHenrique, I don't have a response. This contest is rigged if the design doesn't win @Blockaid1

The Devils will continue to accept submissions for the contest, in spite of Henrique's hard work. Fans interested in creating a design for New Jersey's backup goaltender can download a template and submit an entry by noon Aug. 26. The contest's grand-prize winner will receive a meet-and-greet with Kinkaid, an autographed jersey and four lower-level seats to a Devils home game at Prudential Center.  

This isn't the first time a "Seinfeld" character has been featured on Devils goalie equipment. Scott Wedgewood, who started four games for New Jersey last season, has David Puddy's face painted with Devils colors on his mask. Puddy was portrayed by actor Patrick Warburton, who interacted with Wedgewood on Twitter in May.
