On Thursday, two Bruins rookies had a night they’d never forget. Defenseman Charlie McAvoy, who appeared in six playoff games last season, and forward Jake DeBrusk both tallied their first career NHL goals.
What made the night even more special was both of their families were in attendance. And both families were overcome with emotion after the milestone tallies.
DeBrusk scored his goal early in the second period.
At first, his father Louie DeBrusk, a former NHL forward and current Hockey Analyst with Rogers Sportsnet, was overcome with excitement.
But then the moment hit Papa DeBrusk, as he was seen wiping tears from his face from his seat.
The Bruins snapped a photo of the family in the stands.
Bet the DeBrusk family is happy after that! 😁

Ten minutes later, McAvoy scored.
McAvoy’s parents were overcome with joy. So much that his dad didn’t quick know what to do with his arms.
Just 👏 How 👏 Cute 👏 Is 👏 This?! Give me all the proud, emotional parent videos.
When Tyson Jost debuted for the Colorado Avalanche last year, someone brought his grandfather tissues.
Who forgot the tissues tonight?
