End of season speeches can get emotional.

Things are no different at the youth hockey level.

Bryan Berard posted a video of his nephew giving an inspiring and tear-jerking speech to his fellow teammates after their season ended.

Instagram from @bberard4: I love this kid. Brodeman end of the season speech!! #gentlegiant #nephew

The veteran of 10 NHL seasons and 2004 Masterton Trophy winner knows a little something about dedication to the game and leadership. So he decided to shout out the young man for it.

The brief video ends in a full-on team hug.

Don't worry kid, next season will be here soon.
