Help us wish Keelan Moxley, who cannot have a birthday party due to the pandemic, a Happy 9th Birthday
Two years ago, the Washington Capitals won the Stanley Cup and along the way, we were introduced to six-year-old, youth hockey player Keelan Moxley. Keelan was the girl that Brett Connolly tried to throw a warmup puck to two different times before a third was finally given to her by an adult. The clip went viral and inadvertently started a national conversation about the preferential treatment of boys over girls.
Keelan would later meet Connolly and was invited back for the Stanley Cup Final, where she was caught freaking out on camera after Conno scored in Game Four.
In short, Keelan gave us a lot of joy back then, which is why I’d like to return the favor. On Saturday, May 16, Keelan will be turning nine-years-old. The problem is she can’t have a birthday party due to the coronavirus pandemic.
