Being a Colorado Avalanche fan is a lot more enjoyable so far this season. The team has gotten off to a surprising 3-1 start, with back-to-back wins over the Boston Bruins in a home-and-home series.
Prior to puck in Colorado on Wednesday night, Bruins forward David Pastrnak skated over to the glass and noticed a little kid waving at him behind the boards.
Pastrnak, who seems like a pretty bubbly guy and always seems to be in a happy state, engaged with the young fan and recognized him trying to get his attention. As the kid starting jumping up and down in pure excitement, the 21-year-old winger followed his lead and starting jumping up and down with the boy in what is one of the most adorable hockey gifs you’ll ever see.
The little kid’s night was instantly made, and the Avalanche’s 6-3 win was just the icing on the cake in what will likely be one of his most memorable games he’ll ever take in.
The Bruins forward has one goal in three games after potting 34 in 2016-17.
