The New Jersey Devils hosted its 2022 Hockey Fights Cancer Night, celebrating nine-year old Richard “RJ” Ferguson, a pediatric cancer patient at Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey. RJ had the honor of reading the starting line up in the locker room prior to the game and participated in a ceremonial puck drop. The Devils also celebrated Will Luke, a survivor of a rare form of lymphoma and treated at Rutgers Cancer Institute, as a “Hero Among Us” during the game.
