Thanks to Scampy

Charles West, Mount Albert, Ont.

I recently took my 17-month-old son to the Canada vs. USA Legends game at the Air Canada Centre. It was his first time at a hockey game and hats off to the organizers who put on such a family-friendly show.

But what made the day so special was when Ray Scapinello skated over to us, tapped the glass and threw my little guy a puck.

Just one more reason hockey players and officials have a reputation for being the most grounded of all the major sports.

Thanks, Ray, this will be a day my son and I never forget.
