T.J. Oshie scored the game-winning goal Wednesday, but his postgame assist will stick with one fan for many years to come.

A young Washington Capitals fan leaped for joy after the Capitals forward handed him one of his sticks while leaving the ice after their win against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Tweet from @NBCSCapitals: These moments will never, ever get old. ������

The young fan put himself in a good position to get the stick, but seemed amazed when Oshie actually handed him the game-used twig shortly after scoring the game-winning goal at 18:46 of the third period of Washington's 2-1 win.

The moment was enough to warm any fan's heart, especially after the boy raced up the stairs to show off new prized possession and get a well-deserved hug.
