Watch: Corey Crawford, Blackhawks help babysit young fan

Wednesday February 3rd, 2016

Chicago Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford and his teammates recently helped two avid supporters create a memory that will last forever.

One fan by the name of Emilie spends time looking after Ben, a kid with a condition that makes it difficult to use his arms and legs, who is also enamored with the Blackhawks. Crawford, along with teammates Andrew Shaw and Teuvo Teravainen, decided to drop by to help look after Ben one afternoon. The shared laughs and played street hockey, and at the end of the day, Crawford read Ben a bedtime story.

This act of kindness is just one of a handful that several players have been a part of for the #WhatsYourGoal initiative; last year, Jonathan Toews bought Girl Scout cookies from a small fan, and Duncan Keith skated the ice with another.
