Phil Kessel gave one fan the thrill of a lifetime Monday night in Colorado.
During warmups, the Penguins forward autographed his stick and had one of the team’s equipment managers give it to a young fan standing by the team’s bench.
The fan teared up. And now I’m feeling feels.

The young girl’s sign says: “Kessel #1 Fan. All I want for Christmas is a signed stick and picture.”
Capitals forward TJ Oshie did something similar at practice two years ago. Oshie gave his stick to a tiny fan who said the twig was the only thing he wanted for X-Mas.
“It helps when it’s a good time,” Oshie said to the media. “It’s Thanksgiving right now. Little man had a sign out there and said what he wanted for Christmas was a signed stick. I only had two out here at the practice rink so I had to practice with it first and then skated over and gave it to him.”

Sure he’s on the Penguins, but a hockey player making someone’s day/childhood is always nice to see.
