When a little hockey player couldn't get into a game because he didn't have the right jersey, Mats Zuccarello came to the rescue.

In a video for the New York Rangers' 2018 Bridgestone Winter Classic jersey reveal Friday, the forward magically appears and tosses a sweater to the sad dude on the curb, then joins him for some 2-on-2 street hockey.

A win and a fistbump seals a pretty good afternoon for the kid. You can see the jersey in real game action when the Rangers play the Buffalo Sabres in the Winter Classic at Citi Field on Jan. 1. (1 p.m. ET; NBC, SN, TVA Sports, NHL.TV).
