GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (April 25, 2014) — A young hockey fan’s ecstatic laughter — and the nonchalant generosity of a Grand Rapids Griffin — are bringing smiles to thousands of people around the country. On Friday, the little boy whose video went viral spoke to FOX 17 News.
A video posted on the Griffins’ official YouTube account on Wednesday shows Jordin Tootoo handing his hockey stick to five-year-old Camden Smith, Lowell, who couldn’t contain his excitement. What follows is a perfect reaction that is quickly gaining thousands of views.
According to the Griffins Twitter account, the heartwarming encounter happened at the pregame warmups of the regular season finale on April 18. The 2013 Calder Cup Champions are preparing to defend the cup this weekend in the first round of the post-season.
