Goaltender Corey Crawford has done it all this season, recording a league-best and career-high seven shutouts to pace the Chicago Blackhawks to the top record in the Western Conference.

While obviously comfortable on the ice, Crawford also showed he’s adept at babysitting in the Blackhawks’ latest rendition of the "#WhatsYourGoal" campaign. The 31-year-old netminder joined teammates Andrew Shaw and Teuvo Teravainen in meeting Ben, who was born with a condition that makes it difficult for him to use his arms and legs – thereby creating challenges for Emilie, who looks after him.

When Ben admitted that his favorite player was Crawford, Shaw had a perfect response. Via ChicagoBlackhawks:

“That's a surprise.”

Speaking of a surprise, Ben provided just that to Crawford by tucking the "puck" between his legs during a game of street hockey.

Showing there were no hard feelings, Crawford made macaroni and cheese for lunch and spent time reading with Ben.
