PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — A young fan at Thursday night’s Pittsburgh Penguins game ended up taking home some pretty nice gear after a man in the stands swiped a souvenir puck from him.
The little boy was sitting in the stands behind the visiting bench.
According to CBS Sports, former Penguins coach Dan Bylsma, who now coaches the Buffalo Sabres, pointed to the boy and flipped a game puck over the glass to him.
But before the boy could catch it, another man snatched the puck out of the air. Then, he was promptly booed by everyone else in the stands.
That’s when the Penguins jumped into action.
Penguins mascot Iceburgh gave the boy a Sidney Crosby jersey. Also, Bylsma later gave another puck to an usher who presented it to the little boy.
CBS Sports reports the man who snagged the original puck was not in his seat for the rest of the second period.
