partypoker Signs New Jersey Devils Legend Ken Daneyko

partypoker scored a major coup for the online gambling industry when they formed the first partnership with a U.S. sports franchise back in January.

The deal and the partnership picked up some real steel in building the relationship with partypoker's addition of a New Jersey Devils' legend to the partypoker team. Ken Daneyko, former defenseman and three-time Stanley Cup champion, just stepped into the world of sponsored online poker players by joining Team partypoker. Daneyko joins Kara Scott, Mike Sexton, Jamie Kerstetter and Scott Baumstein as he takes on the role of promoting online poker with partypoker.

Daneyko has been a regular at the tables in Atlantic City for quite some time and won the WPT Borgata Spring Poker Open $230 Deepstack in April. Look for him to play WPT live events at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City as a member of Team partypoker and during New Jersey Devils home games you will find him at the partypoker social events this upcoming season.

“I used to get excited at the drop of a puck but now I can’t wait for the turn of the river,” said Daneyko. “Joining Team partypoker with a great champion like Mike Sexton and a great team in Kara, Jamie and Scott makes us the perfect line-up. I love New Jersey, I love poker and there is no better place to play online in the Garden State than on I can’t wait to play, have fun, win and make new friends online ... but mostly win because I love the competition.”

“Ken was a fierce competitor on the ice and from what I’ve seen, he’s even fiercer at the poker table,” said Team partypoker captain Mike Sexton. “He is a great addition to the team and will be a great ambassador for online poker in New Jersey.”

Team partypoker will find Daneyko in the spotlight when he makes his first official appearance during partypoker New Jersey's $200 buy-in Main Event of the Garden State Super Series (GSSS) on Sunday, September 15th. If you're fortunate to sit in a game with Daneyko, be sure to try and bust him to collect the bounty on him during that tournament. Take him out of action and you'll pocket a ticket to a future partypoker Sunday Major that's valued at $200 but could parlay into a huge payday!
