Talk about a good sign.

Before the start of a game against the Nashville Predators on Thursday, Vancouver Canucks forward Bo Horvat made a young fan's night.

On his way back to the locker room after the warmup, Horvat spotted a kid near the boards. He asked a staff memeber for a pen, signed the blade of an extra stick on the bench and handed it over.

The reaction, as the saying goes, was priceless.

After gaining a new lifelong fan, Horvat went out and scored his 13th goal of the season in a 5-3 victory.
