Wednesday night in Edmonton, Alex Ovechkin generously tossed one of his Bauer hockey sticks to tiny Caps fan Cash Niebergall. The gesture went viral on social media and moved Cash’s mother Miranda to tears. In a guest post on RMNB Thursday, Miranda explained how Cash — nicknamed Niebvechkin by his hockey teammates — hoped to get Ovi, his idol and favorite hockey player, to sign his stick. Cash waited after the game, but never ran into Ovi.
He will now get the opportunity.
