LOOK: 'Seinfeld' Character 'David Puddy' Returns at New Jersey Devils Game
Actor Patrick Warburton revved up the crowd at the New Jersey Devils game Tuesday by reprising his "Seinfeld" role as a crazed fan.
Warburton, who is from Paterson, New Jersey, dressed up in the same Martin Brodeur jersey and painted his face in the same design David Puddy wore in the famed 1995 episode.

Warburton, 54, came out for the ceremonial puck drop as the announcers jokingly asked about the state of his "on-again, off-again relationship with Elaine Benes."
After leaving the ice, Warburton ripped off his jersey to roars from the crowd before the Devils fell to Pittsburgh 4-3.
"He's just supporting the team," another announcer said, quoting the line Puddy used as an excuse for his over-the-top celebrations during a game against the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden.
Warburton refused to be paid an appearance fee at the Prudential Center, instead asking for donations to St. Jude Children's Hospital, ESPN reported.
Warburton currently stars in the FOX television series "Family Guy" and "The Orville."
