View of the new Scoreboard at the Prudential Center, Home of the New Jersey Devils

The New Jersey Devils will make their season debut at the Prudential Center tomorrow night when they take on the Colorado Avalanche. Devils fans will receive quite the surprise when they reach their seats as the New Jersey Devils organization have officially added the largest scoreboard in the National Hockey League. In recent months, the Detroit Red Wings were boasting the largest scoreboard in the National Hockey League at Little Caesars Arena; the team’s new home arena.

The Prudential Center’s scoreboard will feature 20 individual displays, four HD televisions at it’s base and nearly 30 million pixels. The scoreboard exceeds 9500 total square feet which is equivalent to 1300 fifty-inch televisions. Trans-Lux, an LED display and lighting solutions provider in Connecticut, designed the scoreboard which weighs in at more than 88,000 pounds. One side of the new scoreboard measures nine times larger than the Prudential Center’s old scoreboard. The entire scoreboard itself is twice as large as the scoreboard at Madison Square Garden, home of the New York Rangers.

This new feature is an effort by the New Jersey Devils organization to improve the fan experience at the Prudential Center who have boasted less than stellar attendance numbers over the last several seasons. The Devils also play in a competitive fan market with both the New York Rangers and New York Islanders playing their home games only a few miles from the Prudential Center. Other notable larger than life scoreboards in professional sports include those offered at AT&T Stadium (Dallas Cowboys), NRG Stadium (Houston Texans) and the Toyota Center (Houston Rockets).
