Students at the Albany School of Humanities sent Devil Dawg some fan mail, thanking him for his visit on August 4.
On Saturday, July 17 Devil Dawg was at the Saratoga Race Course for their annual Open House before the start of racing season. To start the races right, mascots of the Capital Region were on hand for a mascot race for themselves. Devil Dawg crossed the finish line with the middle of the pack while his friend Puck from RPI was the first place winner.
On Wednesday, Aug. 3, members of the Albany Devils staff joined the Blue Star Mothers, family and friends to welcome home MSgt Thomas Heyman, SSgt Samuel Webster and SrA Robert Loomis of the 139th Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron from Stratton Air National Guard. They were stationed in Afghanistan.
Devil Dawg supported runners of the Fifth Annual Team Teagan 5k Benefit Run at Saratoga State Park on Saturday, July 9. The run was first started in 2007 to benefit now nine-year-old cancer survivor Teagan Klingenberg, with a different Honored Hero each year since. This year Teagan’s family along with the help of event director Jackie Scotti honored two fighters, Hannah Hughes and Kristen Shinebager.

The Albany Devils and the American Red Cross Blood Drive, which was held on July 6 at the Guilderland Public Library, achieved 172 percent of its projected goal. The Red Cross estimates that 294 lives were saved thanks to the help of the Capital Region and Albany Devils fans.
The pre-event goal for the day was 57 usable donations. The Red Cross left with 98 pints of blood from 109 presenting donors, including 25 first-time participants.
“The Albany Devils helped the American Red Cross boost the blood supply during the summer when collections typically decline to ensure we have life-saving blood for patients in need,” said American Red Cross New York-Penn Region District Director Aric Aery. “We’re grateful to the Albany Devils and their fans for supporting the Red Cross humanitarian mission to provide blood supplies, disaster services, aid to our military, life-saving and emergency response.”
“We were inspired by the natural disaster in Springfield and saw the struggle that a fellow AHL city went through,” said Devils Executive Director Chris Ciceri. “The success of the drive is a reflection on the great and caring people of the Capital Region. I hope everyone who participated left feeling satisfied.”
Participating donors were awarded with a free carton of Friendly’s Ice Cream, while the Albany Devils Street Team – with the help of Devil Dawg – gave away approximately 70 prizes that included tickets and signed memorabilia.
