Thanks to Dallas Stars center Vernon Fiddler, nine-year-old Chloe Brown experienced a moment that likely will last a lifetime.

During warmups Thursday before the Stars' 6-3 loss against the Winnipeg Jets, Fiddler saw Chloe, a two-time Leukemia survivor, wearing a replica of his No. 38 jersey behind the glass, and tossed a puck to Chloe's s father, who was standing behind her. After getting the puck from her dad, she looked up to see the moment captured on the jumbotron at American Airlines Center.

As Fiddler skated away, he appeared to wipe tears from his face.

Chloe then looked up at the screen and waved excitedly, much to the joy of her family.

After the NHL posted the video on its Twitter page, Chloe's mom, Rhonda, posted the following message on her Facebook page:

"This is my little girl NHL and she adores Mr. Fiddler. He brought her to first hockey game 3 years ago as a [member of] Fidd's Kidds. She is a two time Leukemia survivor and a Dallas Stars fan. If you saw her room you would understand how much he makes her life better each day! Thank you for sharing this so I could see her face."

Tweet from @NHL: As long as we keep capturing these moments, we will keep on sharing them. #HockeyHappyhttps://t.co/LoZpFlq3U7
