Braden Holtby just wants to toss warmup pucks to tiny fans, but these adults keep foiling his plans.
Monday night at Rogers Arena, the beardy goalie found another child he wanted to give a puck to during warmups.
But a teenager with a freakishly long wingspan ended that dream quickly.

It’s what happened next which is amazing.
The fan celebrated his new souvenir which was totally not intended for him in front of the goaltender. A sassy and perhaps seething Holtby stared back in disbelief as if to say I thought humanity was better than this, but I was wrong. So very wrong.
Eleven days ago, Holtbeast mode got engaged again after another adult got his signals crossed with the goaltender and did not give a warmup puck to a child as well.
C’mon, people. Do better.
