Welcome to Pucks and Pitchforks, the New Jersey Devils news and opinions site brought to you by the FanSided Network. Pucks and Pitchforks is dedicated to providing top-notch Devils news, views and original content.

I graduated from Rutgers University in Newark in May 2014 with a bachelor's degree in history. I'm 22 and have been a fan of the Devils since I knew what hockey was. Alexander Mogilny was my favorite player growing up and now Travis Zajac owns that title. I eat, sleep and breathe Jersey's team and I'm always willing to talk hockey or really any sport.
I am currently a Sophomore at Montclair State University. My major is Television and Digital Media with a concentration in Sports Journalism. As Co-Editor of Fansided's Pucks and Pitchforks and Staff Writer of Playing for 90, I am looking to improve my journalism for a future career.
Born and raised in New Jersey, I am a lifelong New Jersey Devils fan. I am a graduate of Ramapo College of New Jersey with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Journalism. Although I'm a a deep-rooted sports fanatic, hockey has always been my passion. Follow me on Twitter @AnthonySmith_6.
Currently a college student in Philadelphia studying Mathematics. The reason I chose to focus on Math was due to an interest in Sports Statistics and a fan of new age sports analysis. I was born and raised in North Jersey, where I have been lucky enough to watch the great Martin Brodeur and the Devils bring 3 NHL championships home.
We aren't called FanSided for nothing. Our network of sports, entertainment and lifestyle sites are powered by fans that want to cover their passions! Whether you are just looking to get your start in online media or you want to contribute to your favorite site as a hobby, FanSided wants to hear from you.
Our work is regularly featured on SI.com and Bleacher Report and many FanSided writers have gone on to work full-time in online media. FanSided hired over ten of its own writers in 2013 and there are currently FanSided alums working at other major media outlets and with professional sports teams.
FanSided was born in 2007, when two brothers felt that their favorite team, the Kansas City Chiefs, was being under-covered by the mainstream media. Taking matters into their own hands, they launched Arrowhead Addict, a move that would spawn a network of over 290 fan-powered unique sports and entertainment sites dedicated to team-specific, sport-specific, genre-specific, and fanbase-specific coverage.
From sports, movies and TV to lifestyle and tech, FanSided has you covered.
