It’s your pal Davey Mac here! And, as a lifelong resident of New Jersey, I’m excited to announce that hockey is returning to East Rutherford!
The Premier Hockey Federation’s Metropolitan Riveters will play their home games inside American Dream…the complex located in East Rutherford where The Meadowlands existed. The Riveters are a professional women’s hockey team.
Of course, this marks a hockey return to that area for the first time since 2007 (the Devils played in East Rutherford from 1982 to 2007). The building will hold around 2,000 fans and is expected to offer good fun and drink. I like it!
“We’re extremely excited to provide our players with a state-of-the-art facility that they can call home,” said Digit Murphy, President of the Metropolitan Riveters.”The unrivaled entertainment and retail at American Dream will let us reimagine the hockey fan experience together” pic.twitter.com/Re28qvGszh— Metropolitan Riveters (@Riveters) September 14, 2022
Hey, I’m all for seeing some good hard hockey at this place. While the Devils are still going strong in Newark…it’ll be nice to enjoy action on the ice at the Meadowlands again. I’m all in! Let’s go Riveters!
Check out this fantastic highlight video of the Devils winning their first Stanley Cup in 1995 in Jersey! What a memory!
And since we’re feeling nostalgic, let’s take another trip down memory lane! The Devils clinched their second title in Dallas…but in 2003 the Devils were back on their home ice in East Rutherford when they won their third Stanley Cup! What a time!
