Last week we talked about all the local boys you could see in the NHL playoffs and now one of them is making headlines, but it has nothing to do with his playoff performance. Washington Capitals Brett Connolly getting ready for the Blue Jackets, This happened in warm-up. Connolly sees a little girl and decides to give her a souvenier, but it gets passed over to a young fan beside her. So Connolly tries again, and for a second time it's passed to a boy on her other side. But the prince George pro doesn't give up, and makes sure this little girl goes home with a smile. He's getting a lot of praise from the sports community today, some even calling him a hero. Maybe that dad's a hero though, cuz all three kids ended up going home with a puck.
