Edmonton Oilers goalie Cam Talbot had two of the smallest (and cutest) fans rooting him on during his shutout victory at the 2016 Tim Hortons Heritage Classic on Sunday.

Talbot's wife, Kelly, tweeted a picture of the couple's newborn twins watching the outdoor game, which the Oilers won 3-0 against the Jets in Winnipeg.

Each twin wore a custom made Oilers jersey with the goalie's No. 33 and "Daddy" printed on the back.

Landon Thomas and Sloane Colleen Talbot were introduced to the world on Cam's twitter account on October 19. The Oilers official account shared in the goalie's joy pointing out that this week Talbot has three new wins and two new children.
