Sometimes this kind of thing happens by accident. Maybe the person doesn’t see the kid, maybe the puck is thrown at them even though it wast intended for someone else, but in this case this guy is clearly being a total jerk.
Sabres coach Dan Bylsma was doing a nice thing tossing a puck to a little kid in the crowd at the Buffalo/Pittsburgh game last night. The not nice thing to do is to be that old guy reaching over, intercepting it, putting it in his pocket and sitting down. The poor kid didn’t know what to do.
Good thing the Pittsburgh Penguins are on it.
