Hey, what are teammates for after all?

Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Adam Boqvist scored his first NHL goal against the Anaheim Ducks on Sunday. 

Forward Kirby Dach celebrated, but only for a split second before he raced over to pick up the puck for his buddy.

Dach was parked in front of the net to the right of Ducks goalie Ryan Miller and after Boqvist's goal went in off the post you can see Dach's hands go up in celebration, but only briefly, before he hustles over to grab the sovenir biscuit.

Blackhawks TV analyst Eddie Olczyk pointed out Dach's effort to get the puck on the broadcast.
