There was a moment during a contest against the Minnesota Wild in early January last season that defenceman Travis Dermott took a look around Scotiabank Arena.
It wasn't just any regular afternoon game on the 2018-19 schedule, it was the inaugural Next Gen Game presented by Scotiabank.
There were kids as in-arena hosts, announcers, and much more. Not to mention the bowl was filled to the brim with families of all ages watching their favourite team take on the Wild.
And Dermott couldn't help but put himself in the kid's shoes.
