Watch Former NHL Enforcer Louie DeBrusk Cry After Witnessing His Son’s First NHL Goal (VIDEO)
Even tough guys cry sometimes. Just ask Louie DeBrusk.
A fan favorite in Edmonton who now serves as an analyst for Rogers Sportsnet, DeBrusk played 401 games in the NHL, during which he recorded 41 points and a whopping 1,161 penalty minutes.
Clearly, DeBrusk was not afraid to drop the gloves. However, in Boston on Thursday, the former NHL enforcer could not stop waterworks.
DeBrusk was at TD Bank Gardens to see his son’s NHL debut. Jake DeBrusk, 20, was selected 14th overall by the Bruins in 2015, and after a couple more years in Juniors and one season in the AHL, he finally made the Bruins roster this year.
Sure enough, in his first NHL game, Jake DeBrusk scored his first NHL goal, a beauty off all-world netminder Pekka Rinne.
Jake DeBrusk celebrated his goal with an emphatic fist pump, just like you’d expect from a 20-year-old hot shot sniper. However, up in the stands, after sharing a bunch of the hugs and high fives with his family, Jake DeBrusk’s proud papa could be seen wiping away tears of joy.
Take a look:
