If you are going to dress as a goalie, Jacob Markstrom is going to make sure you have the right stick.
A young Vancouver Canucks fan was in the crowd at Amalie Arena for a game against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday. He was dressed in some, but not enough goalie gear for Markstom's liking.
The youngster was wearing a white Canucks jersey, goalie mask and blocker. He was holding what appeared to be a souvenir mini stick.
Markstrom changed that immediately.
The Canucks goalie passed the real thing over the boards to the kid, who had to be smiling ear-to-ear under the bucket.
It probably will be a few more years until the wanna-be pro netminder grows into being able to use it, but why not start practicing now?
