Warmups give hockey players a chance to share some tender moments with young fans, unless you're faced with an easily frightened baby. In that case, you get what happened to Michael Del Zotto on Thursday.

The Vancouver Canucks defenseman spotted a boy by the glass and decided to have some fun with him by squirting his water bottle in his direction, but the kid wasn't having it.

Some quick thinking by Del Zotto saved the day, however.

A little high five and no hard feelings.
