Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin has always had a soft spot for his younger fans and Saturday in Calgary, the Russian machine basically made one kid’s life.
As warmups ended, Ovi tossed one of his CCM sticks into the crowd. And we’ve got breaking news: the adult who caught the souvenir actually gave the stick to the intended target. That has been a problem recently.
I cannot handle this kid’s reaction. It’s so pure.
It’s unclear if it was this kid’s birthday or not – a nearby sign said Ovechkin, All I wanted 4 my birthday was 2 see you play…. PS It’s my birthday!
Regardless, there were a lot of deserving tiny Caps fans at the game today.
