You can't trust anyone on April Fool's Day, and that goes doubly for mascots.

NJ Devil, the mischievous mascot of the New Jersey Devils, executed a strong prank when he lined up outside an elevator to shoot rubber pucks at unsuspecting employees of the Devils and Prudential Center.

The Devils mascot put a street-hockey net inside the staff elevator, which caught workers off guard as they entered. When the staffers reached the desired floor, NJ Devil was waiting to surprise them with an air horn and a smattering of shots on goal.

The mascot appeared exceptionally pleased with the number of goals and victims he scored. But kudos are in order for the one employee jumped in front of a shot, doing his best Cory Schneider imitation.
