Brady Skjei helped make one girl's Christmas wish come true Monday.
Skjei made Mikey Mahoney's night by tossing a stick her way during warmups before the New York Rangers game against the Nashville Predators.
Mahoney, of Bloomingdale, New Jersey, brought a sign that said "All I want for Christmas is a stick from Brady Skjei." The Rangers defenseman skated over to her and tossed the stick to her, moving her near tears.
Mahoney has been a fan of Skjei's since meeting him at an event, and in subsequent interactions they've had while she's attended games at MSG. Getting a stick from Skjei was an emotional experience for her.
"I met him at a meet and greet," Mahoney told NHL.com. "My goal was to eventually get his stick, and it was amazing and I cried a lot."
