Young fan brought to tears after getting a stick from Pavel Buchnevich (video)


Grab that Kleenex box, folks.

This young New York Rangers fan was brought to tears after forward Pavel Buchnevich slid his stick over the top of the glass and into his outstretched hands prior to the Blueshirts game against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday.

The two high-fived each other before the young fan, sporting Buchnevich’s jersey. was overcome with emotion.

Hockey is great.
