Excited Penguins toddler, sad Blue Jackets kid may be NHL’s most hardcore fans
Kick to the curb the myth that the future of America doesn’t care about hockey.
As the Blue Jackets and Penguins square off in a first-round Stanley Cup playoff series, two young fans may just be the ambassadors for a new generation of passionate hockey fans.
The younger of the two is a 2-year-old boy so enthusiastic about the Pens that he uses a toy lawnmower as a Zamboni in his living room, WTAE’s Kelly Brennan explains.
Then there’s a 6-year-old Blue Jackets fan who is already a diehard, so devastated by the Columbus’ heartbreaking Game 3 loss that he was brought to tears.
Kale the Jackets fan will hope to have a reaction more similar to Tyler the Penguins fan after Wednesday night’s game.
