It’s the best time to be a young hockey fan because players today give away pucks and sticks during warm-ups at an extremely high rate.
A lot of the times the players just toss the pucks to the young kids pressed up against the glass or hand off a stick to the smallest set of hands reaching out over the tunnel, but sometimes they like to interact with young fans and give them a memory that usually lasts longer than the souvenir.
This young fan wanted to get his hands on a puck but wasn’t expecting it for free. So, he put out the offer to Utica Comets defenceman Josh Teves the idea of trading his bag of candy for a game puck and the Vancouver Canucks prospect didn’t waste any time making the deal. In fact, he even sweetened the deal for the young fan and only took one piece of candy in return.
It doesn’t get any sweeter than that.
