The New Jerseys Devils announced Wednesday that they will donate 10,000 game tickets in the 2020-21 season to the RWJBarnabas Health frontline healthcare workers

"Each passing day we are filled with more gratitude for frontline healthcare workers who continue to dedicate themselves to help the residents of New Jersey," team president Jake Reynolds said, per Chris Wescott of the team's website.

The Devils will also donate an additional pair of tickets to frontline workers for every season ticket or plan member who pushes their credits into the 2020-21 campaign.

"We are proud to stand alongside our partners, RWJBarnabas Health, as we salute frontline workers whose strength and resilience mirrors the determination of our New Jersey communities, our players and our Devils family," Reynolds added.

Additionally, the team is starting a campaign, #StickTapsat7, with various members of the organization, including players, taking to social media to tap their hockey sticks in honor of frontline workers.
