Luke Buck won the best in-arena prize ever Wednesday.
The 10-year-old fan was surprised by his dad, Staff Sgt. Ian Buck, who just got done serving a year-long tour in Afghanistan, during the second period of the New York Rangers game against the Washington Capitals.
Luke was chosen to compete in a movie-naming contest against Rangers defenseman Adam Fox. Luke named 13 sports movies in 15 seconds, defeating Fox's six and earning him a Rangers jersey.
That's when Ian, a huge Rangers fan who once flew a team flag next to his American flag on a helicopter during a mission, came racing down the stairs to surprise his son with the jersey. Luke saw his dad and ran up the stairs, then gave him a huge hug as he burst into tears.
The crowd roared, and the players on the ice tapped their sticks.
The Rangers didn't let the Bucks down either, claiming a 4-1 win against Washington.
