A hockey puck can be a souvenir but apparently it can also be a teether. They are cold after all.

A young Minnesota Wild fan munched on a gift that Minnesota Wild goalie Devan Dubnyk tossed his way before a game against the St. Louis Blues on Sunday.

Dubnyk flipped the puck over the glass in hopes of handing out a souvenir, but the curious kid, perhaps sensing its temperature fresh off the ice, grabbed it and immediately began chewing on the biscuit.

Here's hoping it cooled down those developing teeth and gums, at least for a little while.
