A look back at N.J. Devils' doodle campaign

By Patrick Dorsey



On Monday night, the New Jersey Devils will play host to the New York Rangers. If the home team wins, that guarantees at least one more 2011-12 game at Prudential Center.

Today we take a look back at one of those New Jersey Devils home contests, one from April, in which the NHL squad held a special online competition through the Web program/app Doodle.ly, asking fans to submit their best Devils-themed artwork. The winner, Jessica Chepauskas, scored season tickets and got her doodle on an in-game giveaway towel during the Stanley Cup Playoffs:

...and here's a close-up of the winning doodle.

This isn't the only contest of its kind, either; the Minnesota Timberwolves also asked for drawings, and the Phoenix Coyotes -- still alive in the postseason -- are seeking submissions as well.

Here are some of the other finalists from the Devils' contest. You can see all entries here.
