Who needs chocolate and flowers? Mitchell Marner knows you celebrate Valentine's Day with a puck.

The Toronto Maple Leafs forward spotted a young fan in the stands at T-Mobile Arena before a game against the Vegas Golden Knights with a sign that read: "Hey Mitch!!!! Be My Valentine?!"

And while Marner couldn't spend all of Valentine's Day with his new friend (he had to work after all), he did the next best thing.

Marner found a puck and flipped it over the boards and politely asking the girl if she would like to take a photo with him.

It was an unforgettable Valentine's Day and the young fan's face says it all.
