Pittsburgh Penguins forward Matt Cullen is not only a veteran of 19 NHL seasons, he's also a veteran parent.

Cullen's adorable son squirted his backside with Gatorade he skated around the ice with the Stanley Cup, and dad handled it like a pro.

Tweet from @NHLonNBCSports: ������

Cullen, who has three sons and penned an essay titled "Hockey Dad" for The Players Tribune before the 2016 Stanley Cup Final, simply had no reaction.

None at all. Just kept skating.

When the younger Cullen realized the cameras had caught him dousing dad, he smiled. Then went back to drinking the Gatorade.
