Cole Cassidy has good hockey genes, but he may have a future in football.

The son of Boston Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy showed some solid hands after reeling in a difficult catch at New England Patriots training camp Monday.

Cassidy took Cole and the rest of his family to Foxborough, Massachusetts to watch the, defending Super Bowl champions practice. He even managed to score a meeting with Patriots owner Robert Kraft and coach Bill Belichick.

The Patriots were avid supporters of Boston's run to the Stanley Cup Final, and Cassidy even acknowledged the impact the Patriots in attendance had in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference First Round against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Cassidy may have been the most athletic guest, but he wasn't the only high-profile fan watching the Patriots. Jon Bon Jovi, a rock star and close friend of both Kraft and Belichick, also made an appearance in Foxborough on Monday.
