Like father, like son.
The hockey world was treated to a feel-good moment during the second intermission of the Maple Leafs-Bruins game Monday night in Toronto. Former NHLer and current TSN game analyst Ray Ferraro interviewed his son, Landon, who was playing in his first game with Boston after being claimed off waivers from the Red Wings earlier in the week.
The elder Ferraro had a pretty good view when his progeny was initially credited with a second period goal that was later changed to teammate Brad Marchand.
Before the official scoring change after the period, the father and son met to catch up on recent events:
“Don’t be shy. Go get another one,” Ray said with a smile and a pat on his son’s shoulder.
At 24-years-old, Landon has one goal and one assist in 18 career NHL games. Ray had a long, successful playing career, totaling 408 goals and 898 regular season points over 18 seasons with the Whalers, Islanders, Rangers, Kings, Thrashers and Blues.
