Brady Tkachuk can floss, but his moves were no match for one young Ottawa Senators fan in Calgary on Thursday.

The Senators supporter defeated the Ottawa forward in a pregame floss-off, earning a puck before the Senators game against the Calgary Flames at Scotiabank Saddledome.

The Senators fan came with a sign that said "Floss off for your stick?" directed at Tkachuk. Tkachuk was a good sport, indulging in the young rooter's request even as he and his teammates prepared for the game against his brother Matthew Tkachuk and the Pacific Division-leading Flames.

The fan didn't get the stick, but Tkachuk still threw him the souvenir for his efforts. We'll see if he gets to meet Mitchell Marner's mom Bonnie in a championship dance-off.
