hockey fan catches puck while holding baby

You really don’t see many videos of fans catching hockey pucks. I suspect this probably has a lot to do with the fact that, if you try, the puck is more likely to kill you than end up as a souvenir in your den. And on the rare occasion that a puck does fly over the glass and get caught by a fan, it’s hardly notable.

However, today’s example is different. No, the puck isn’t going 80 mph when it gets caught. But the fan who catches it is holding a baby. So that’s something, right?

It happened at an AHL game between the Norfolk Admirals and Bridgeport Sound Tigers on January 4.  A man in a Bridgeport Sound Tigers Anders Nilsson sweater sitting in the front row stood up and snagged a puck that came fluttering over the glass while holding his infant.

Aside from the fact that the guy was wearing a customized minor league hockey goalie jersey, it was all pretty badass. Take a look:
