After running some errands on Friday, Blackhawks fan Melissa from Naperville, Ill., came home to quite the scene: her 8-year-old son Hayden in his goalie gear, watching the Blackhawks face off against the Columbus Blue Jackets. She captured the moment and posted it on her personal Instagram account.

"Hockey is in Hayden’s blood," writes Melissa. "In addition to worshiping Corey Crawford, Hayden looks up to his uncle who was a hockey goalie and his cousin who plays for Chicago Mission."

Hayden is set to join the Sabre Youth Hockey Club next season and, as his mother writes, "promises to not be a 'swiss cheese goalie.'"
