Antti Raanta got tiny goalie pads for his baby girl

Born on Feb. 2, Evelyn is newest goaltender in family @NHLdotcom

Antti Raanta is encouraging his daughter to get into the family business in the cutest way possible.

Tweet from @ARaanta31: Evelyn Raanta 02/02/2017Mom and Dad are super happy to have her in their lives. Everyone is feeling great.

The New York Rangers goalie got his newborn, Evelyn, a pair of mini pads.

Brian's Custom Sports from Kingsville, Ontario, made the pads for Raanta. Goalie-pad designer Reo Roy takes about half a day to make the 10-inch high pads, but can only make a few per month, so they are generally reserved for pro goaltenders and other special clients.
