Regular Season Statistics with the Franchise
Stats in bold signifies team leader.
There is only 2 words that can describe Daneyko.

But let me tell you why first.

Most seasons with the Devils by far. Most games played as a Devil. You know he doesn't take any shit from anybody
.
Hence, the high number of penalty minutes in his career. (Also a team record.) He was an energy guy. He was a hard
hitter. And he was immensely popular with both the team and the fans. Even today.

I repeat: there is only 2 words that can describe him.

Mr. Devil.


So he was a natural fit to take over for Chico Resch as colorman for the TV broadcasts in 2014, after serving MSG as
the Devils' rep for the studio analysts since 2005.
