Adam Henrique and the New Jersey Devils found the perfect way to support the team.

Henrique and some of his Devils buddies debuted shirts with the painted face of fictional Devils fan David Puddy from the TV sitcom "Seinfeld."

Brian Boyle, Stefan Noesen, Keith Kinkaid and Pavel Zacha joined Henrique in sporting the T-shirts with Puddy's face with his famous quote "We're the Devils! We're the Devils!" from the 1995 episode titled "The Face Painter." Violent Gentlemen, a California-based hockey-lifestyle brand, produced the shirts, called "El Diablo."

Puddy, an ardent Devils fan played by actor Patrick Warburton, donned a Martin Brodeur jersey and face paint for every game he attended. Warburton saw the shirts on social media and put his stamp of approval.

Puddy has also become something of a hero in the Devils organization; goalie Scott Wedgewood's mask features Puddy's face on it.
