With the NHL season paused due to cornavirus concerns, Devils owners Josh Harris and David Blitzer announced that he would continue to pay hourly employees of the Prudential Center.
"We are incredibly grateful for the community of people that come together each game and event night to make the Prudential Center an unbelievably special place for our fans," Harris said. "We realize the suspension of our Devils games and concerts has created an unintended hardship for the men and women who provide for their families and believe our commitment to them in this unprecedented time is imperative."
"For many of us as fans, it's the people who work the games and concerts at Prudential Center that make the experience so incredible," Blitzer said. "These are the folks that feel like family every time I step in the arena, so it's natural to show our support and commitment through this gesture."
The Prudential Center also postponed the remainder of events scheduled for March.
The Devils were on schedule to play seven more home games, six in March, when the NHL announced the postponement of the season.
The Prudential Center was supposed to host a taping of VH1's "Wild 'N Out" on March 14 and a Billie Eilish concert on March 16. The annual "Mikey Strong" charity game, originally scheduled for March 27, is also postponed.
