Military Appreciation Day

The Albany Devils and their fans will celebrate the Armed Services on Saturday, April 12 during “Military Appreciation Day.” All active and retired service members will receive free admission to the game by showing proper identification at the Times Union Center box office.

The festivities begin at 3 pm in the Times Union Center Atrium for a pregame party. Representatives from various military branch will be on hand with interactive information and fans.

The Albany Devils Booster Club will be collecting donations for soldiers recovering from combat injuries at the military hospital in Landstahl, Germany. New white t-shirts and white socks in all sizes can be brought  to the Booster Club table during Saturday’s game.
