FLORHAM PARK, NJ — As part of New Jersey Devils’ annual “Season of Giving” holiday campaign in which players visit local medical centers, dating back to the Devils’ first season in New Jersey in 1982, players donned their game jerseys as they visited all RWJBarnabas Health facilities this week with giveaways in hand.
Saint Barnabas Medical Center (SBMC) in Livingston thanked New Jersey Devils players Nico Hischier, Marcus Johansson and Mirco Mueller for visiting with the children and staff in its Pediatrics Unit, Burn Intensive Care Unit and the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. Representatives stated that their annual holiday visit “brightens the season for so many people.”

“Our patients and staff look forward to the NJ Devils visiting Saint Barnabas Medical Center during the holiday season,” said Zieniewicz. “We appreciate our partnership with the NJ Devils and the time they devote to our patients and the community.”
