There’s a new Philadelphia Flyers fan in town. She’s very small, but very cute, and her dad plays for the team.

Aw. Congrats to the VandeVeldes! The only way this would be more perfect is if she had an orange blanket or bow, but it’s Hockey Fights Cancer night, and that pink is pretty close to purple, so it all works out.
Chris VandeVelde isn’t really a guy anyone relies on for scoring; he has just 12 goals in 207 career games, and only one assist so far this season. But he has had some career seasons since joining the Flyers, so it’s not out of the question he scores a dad goal sometime soon.
And really, that’d be the only way to make all of this even more awesome than it already is.
