Ask for season tickets and you shall receive them -- if you earn the requisite number of retweets.
New Jersey Devils fan Nick Donnelly learned that valuable lesson Tuesday, when his tweet requesting free season tickets went viral and netted him a full subscription for the 2017-18 season.
The Devils put together a formula where he'd receive a five-game package if he got 3,150 retweets and a full-season subscription with 9,450 retweets in less than one week.
Then the race was on. Some Devils players, notably forwards Taylor Hall and Adam Henrique, and goalie Keith Kinkaid, helped Donnelly's progress by retweeting and sharing it on Twitter.
Donnelly surpassed the threshold for a full-season subscription at about 9:15 p.m. ET on Tuesday, less than one day after his initial request. Although the Devils technically lost the deal, they were still happy to welcome Donnelly to their family.
Congratulations to Donnelly and for proving what Wayne Gretzky once famously said: You miss 100 percent of the shots you don't take.
