The Chicago Blackhawks held a ceremony on Sunday night to honor winger Marian Hossa, who scored his 500th career goal earlier this season, and there was one moment that will be sure to tug at your heartstrings.
During the ceremony, Hossa and his daughter were waving to the crowd at the United Center, and they shared the kind of touching moment that one would expect from a doting father and his adorable child:
For fans who want to watch the entire ceremony, the Blackhawks posted a video to their official website.
Hossa’s 500th goal came earlier this month in a game against the Philadelphia Flyers. The winger, who signed with the Blackhawks before the 2009-10 season, has won three Stanley Cups during his tenure with the team, and he’s closing in on 500 career games played with the organization as well.
Hossa is also four points away from another significant milestone, as he would reach 1100 total points in his NHL career. With six more assists, he will also reach 600 career helpers as an NHL player, which would certainly boost his chances of making the Hockey Hall of Fame when his career wraps up.
