Video: NHL player, young boy star in heartwarming video

BY Jimmy Traina • December 12, 2013

Watch the video below of Minnesota Wild forward Charlie Coyle giving a young fan a thrill simply by waving at him.

The adorable scene took place Sunday night before Minnesota's home game against the San Jose Sharks. The youngster made his move by tapping on the glass so a real life NHL player would acknowledge him. Coyle came through and the result was the little boy smiling from ear to ear while being completely unable to contain his excitement.

Just perfect.
