Comments from Youtube

WickedPissahVideos : The Dad isn't a "genius", the only thing he "orchestrated" was looking like a DOUCHE. He should thank Connolly for the parenting lesson. I just hope the Dad remembered she also needed a ride home.

Emily : Well... 1. He's not anyone's dad. Stop praising him as a "smart dad." The girl's dad was sitting several rows behind. 2. The player meant to throw the puck for the girl, unfortunately some dude decided that she didnt deserve it. Or worse, he didnt even notice the jumping girl reaching for the puck. 3. The girl said in an interview that she's happy for the boys (at the moment the boys received the pucks) but was sad that she didnt get one like them (which she eventually got, thanks heavens.)

povang : She's a little angel

Hayleigh Bodoh : If anyone hasn't seen the tweet yet the from the mom of the little girl the "dad" wasn't her father. The little girls father was sitting a few rows back because he didn't want to get in any of the kids way. The man the was giving the pucks to the two boys is either their father or someone else

Alex Leclerc : She is so adorable

John Bolanos : Lol poor the little girl until the end?

DJ Regnier : Her name is Keelan. That was not her dad that caught the pucks. Her dad was 7 rows back. Those two boys also no relation to Keelan. Keelan plays hockey at the mites level. Read the story. Lots of uninformed post, think that man who caught the pucks was the dad. Nope.

Martavis Miles : You see this is why like hockey players

eatenferogenious : Did anyone else notice the guy flinch after he gave the second boy the puck and Connolly banged the glass? watch it again. he crosses his arm, than Connolly bangs the glass and you can see him flinch before pointing to the girl (intended target for the first 2 pucks which he robbed her of) like it was his idea for the girl to get one. That guy sucks.

Anna likes Bananas : Respect for Connolly great guy

Brendan Strode : Third time is the charm

Tyler Burch : She was like โ€œreally...โ€ at first. Poor thing

pp3k07 : Such innocence and deceipt all in one picture.

Paul Greene : Another reason I love the NHL

Leonardo Andres Garcia Pedraza : The little girl will treasure that pock for the rest of her life

zammmerjammer : 0:43 -- Listen to the 2nd announcer IMMEDIATELY leaping in to explain away the obviously sexist douchey behaviour. (facepalm)

Frank Tank : how big of a douche is this #74 dad character - what an a$$

Mike S : Underrated moment: look how cute she looks at 0:38

xTekemo : The guy behind the little girl has his fly open.

joshbowe20 : Jesus NHL stop cutting those onions ๐Ÿ˜ข

CujoF17 : Those two boys need better parenting

Raith Brewer : At first I felt so bad but then that little girl got what she wanted๐Ÿ™‚, now I may hate the Caps but Brett Connolly I think has become my new favorite Capital such a nice guy.

Matthew Martin : Now I gotta admit, that was pretty cute. I got a niece on the way and I swear I will do everything in my power to help raise her the only way one can...to be a hockey fan.

Sergio Melendez : That look she gives after the first loss broke my heart.

Mike Parson : She and her family also got invited back to game 5 by the Capital's owner. It's nice to see NHL teams and players do little things for the fans.

Bazooka Joe : That was the saddest, most adorable look I've ever seen.

Zach Wabason : Awww my heart broke for her when the first boy got the puck.

Gabriel Berry : those dudes were punks i woulda made them give that puck to that poor lil girl lol

ncp : Even if that guy isn't her father, you have to be an idiot to not notice the little girl reaching for the puck in your hand, jumping up and down like a maniac and getting so excited.

Musikkillz Lin : That was sad then happy ohhh my emotions, that man should've gave her the puck first hes so mean. Those there aren't even his kids you can see her dad behind them when she shows him she got a puck. . Someone should teach that man and those boys manners .. sigh..

Luis Alvarez : He might not realize it, but this dude Connolly just saved the earth from assured destruction. I come from a different timeline where this little girl has become a diabolical super villain.

Jackson Allen : NHL BEST SPORT EVER

dfallon8 : I met Brett Connolly and played golf with him, heโ€™s super nice

John Krausse : The little angle was getting a puck from Brett come hell or high water you can believe that ๐Ÿ’—my capitals๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

W Lee : That litlle girl is going to be interviewed by so many news and talk shows the next couple of weeks your going to think she singlehandedly won the Stanley Cup.

tennisdude52278 : The guy behind the little girl has his fly down.

NumbersAndSports : All jokes aside, I gaurentee the instinct for that man who passed the pucks out was "Why would a little girl want the puck, let me give it to the boys". Step your life up old dude.

firstname lastname : Damn, that's why I love Hockey! The game is personal!

MMD 1 : She is so adorable. What a sweet man.

kasanza : AT 0:38 She was one evil lil angel when it didn't make it over the glass, lol. If looks could kill!

Kartoffelschloss : She is adorable. This is is the reason why when I graduate high school I want to move out west find someone to settle down with and start a family. I want to have two little girls one day to care for and protect.

Sun Corlin : That dad didn't "orchestrate" anything, the commentator was making a joke. You can clearly see the Dad pointing at the little boy when Connolly approaches, and as soon as the puck drops, what does Dad do? Hands it right over to the boy. Connolly comes around a second time, drops another puck, and the dad hands it to the other boy. Connolly comes around AGAIN, specifically bangs on the glass beside the little girl, and you can CLEARLY SEE the Dad's face is like "Oh! Her? Oh, yeah, okay!" He was just as amazed as everyone else. It literally never crossed his mind that his daughter would want one until it was presented to him. It's so obvious that no "orchestrating" happened, that after the commentator makes the joke, the other one pauses, and goes, "Well, anyway, look at her face" and moves on. Good on Connolly for letting the little girl have one, but all of you saying that the dad is a "genius" really need to reconsider--the video is showing the exact opposite of that.

Molly Mollinaro : The 2 boys surrounding the girl need a crash course in Public Manners 101.

john pershing : Warning: Some viewers may be triggered ๐Ÿ‘

Paul Maxin : Connolly just made a fan for life

Hazuk.i Sonohara : That was so sweet he took the time to make sure she got a puck too. This made my day.

Zack Zander : As expected from a Canadian...

zootedsuit : If they raise the cup (as they should) she should be considered as an honorary team member ๐Ÿ˜Ž Great stuff!

SoCalFreelance : Another sad case of affluenza, everyone gets a trophy
