Last week, the NHL introduced its return to play plan that included a 24-team play in playoff format to award the Stanley Cup. The announcement officially ended the seasons of the seven worst teams in the league, including our very own New Jersey Devils.

The unprecedented and hopefully short-lived “tweak” to the playoff format put an exclamation point on what will go down as one of the craziest hockey seasons in the leagues’ long and storied history. For the Jersey faithful, it was a fitting end to perhaps the more bizarre Devils season in franchise history.

With New Jersey’s season officially over, let’s take a moment to reflect on some of its highlights and recall some really weird events that took place throughout its abbreviated entirety. Truth be told, this has been one crazy freaking ride for Devils fans.

On that note, here’s a list of the 10 most bizarre moments from this past Devils season.

10. The P.K. Subban Press Conference:

In July of 2019, the Devils welcomed the newly-acquired defenseman in truly bizarre fashion. From the outlandish Ric Flair robe to the smoke-lined drum line, this was a press conference like no other in franchise history. The bombastic nature of the event was only the first of many miscues by the club moving forward.
