This sweet gesture by Nicklas Backstrom made Lias Andersson’s NHL debut against the Capitals even more special
On Monday, Lias Andersson made his NHL debut for the New York Rangers. His first NHL game was already set to be a memorable one, especially as his family were in attendance to watch him reach the milestone. However, it was made all the more unforgettable by an opposing player on the Capitals.
When Andersson took to the ice for his first shift, fellow Swede Nicklas Backstrom approached him and told him, “Great to see you here.”
