The Fog Devils have launched a community initiative involving schools in and around the St. John's area. The initiative is to help schools fundraise through selling Fog Devils tickets and receiving a share of the 50/50 draw at a home game. Contact Rebecca Bell at 754-8282 for more details.

The Fog Devils have begun a minor hockey initiative at the atom level known as the Fog Devils Hardest Working Player Award. Coaches choose a hardest working player at the end of each game, at which point the player receives two ticket vouchers for a Fog Devils home game, a Fog Devils hard hat, and has his or her picture posted on the videoboard at a home game.
