It was "Star Wars Night" at Prudential Center on Friday and nowadays, you know that means Baby Yoda.

The New Jersey Devils hosted the themed night during their game against the Chicago Blackhawks.

NJ Devil, the team's mascot, was hanging with a cuddly likeness of the breakout star character of the new Disney+ series "The Mandalorian."

The Devil was dressed in full Jedi garb and also carried a lightsaber along with his little viral buddy.

Later in the game, the mascot presented Baby Yoda like he was Simba at the start of "The Lion King."
